Hello,

I installed MT5 on a new computer. 

I want to transfer all about MT5 installation (EA, custom indicators, charts etc....) from an old computer. What do I have to do?

Thanks in advance for  support !

I will not list all of the new possibilities and features of the new terminal and language. They are numerous, and some novelties are worth the discussion in a separate article. Also there is no code here, written with object-oriented programming, it is a too serous topic to be simply mentioned in a context as additional advantages for developers. In this article we will consider the indicators, their structure, drawing, types and their programming details, as compared to MQL4. I hope that this article will be useful both for beginners and experienced developers, maybe some of them will find something new.

What is the system of your old computer ? You have to find your files and copy them to your new computer. I suggest you to install your new MT5 in something like C:\MT5 (and not in C:\Program files...)

The old system is Win 7 32 bit, the new one is Win 7 64 bit.
