Today I restarted my Laptop after about a month ago. Now I get an error on starting MT4: "Fehler beim Erzeugen eines leeren Dokuments". (in english: failed to create empty document).

I got Windows 7 x64. MetaTrader worked perfectly till today.

After the Failure, MetaTrader is open, except the Chart Windows! As soon as i rightclick on a symbol and then "Chart", i get the same error. everything else is working perfectly. only that stupid Chart could not be opened.

It has nothing to do with the MT4 Installation,because I tested other MT4 Installations, too. Even reinstalling hasn't fixed the problem.

Whats that for a crap?


Can anybody help? Any Idea? For more information please ask if needed :-)

Maybe it's a UAC issue, either try reinstalling to a directory other than one in Program Files or try reading this: http://crum.be/mt4

thanks for your advice. unfortunately this wasnt the solution. i found it by myself. run CMD as admin. type: "sfc /scannow". Let Windos repair its systemfiles. Restart PC. Done
