I have just installed another 509 Build and upgraded it to the beta build . . . . follow these instructions TO THE LETTER and it should work . . .


Install the standard MT4 build 509 to a
NEW folder outside of Program Files . . .


when it MT4 starts cancel the Open an Account dialogue box . . .


Click Login, set Login to blank, Password to blank and Server to: demo.metaquotes.net:443

NOW click Open an Account, fill in all the required information, click Next > . . . and you will be able to select the demo.metaquotes.net server . . .

. . . now click Next > . . . you now have an a User account on the MetaQuotes demo server. Restart this installation of MT4 . . . when it starts it should automatically close, it is now doing the update, if it doesn't close, restart it again after waiting a few minutes . . . if you have a slow Internet connection you will have to wait a little longer while the update files are downloaded . . . after it closes it updates and will restart itself.

Once it restarts itself you will have the current beta build . . . I have just done exactly what I have described, IT WORKS.

Nice instructions RaptorUK, but I can't get it to work, even following the instructions to the letter.

No matter how many times I close and reopen the 509 version (with demo-metaquotes.net:443 as server), it refuses to install 574. Remains with 509. I've redone the procedure 3 times and still no luck.

Where did you get your 509 from? Your usual broker I assume.

Any further advice appreciated.

Are waiting long enough to get the update ? You need to have the following entry in your Journal tab.

19:45:43.543 LiveUpdate: new version 4.00 build 579 is available

...

19:46:36.303 LiveUpdate: finished

When you get the "LiveUpdate: finished" you can restart.

Still no luck, but thanks RaptorUK

  • Downloaded the 509 from MetaQuotes as per link (thanks).
  • Stopped at the Open an account part.
  • Entered the demo.metaquotes.net:443 in the Login box.
  • Waiting....obviously it's not connected at this point.
  • Closed terminal....waiting....opened again......nothing happens to update
  • So, at this point, we're still at 509................I open an account...........choose the demo.metaquotes.net:443 server.
  • Now open with metaquotes....still on 509. Nothing happens.
  • Close, reopen. Still 509.

Sounds like you are doing it correctly . . . just give it a little time, if you have a slow Internet connection it may take a few minutes to download the update.

I just did another 509 install, after creating an account I get the following in the Journal . . .

2014.01.30 13:45:43 LiveUpdate: finished

2014.01.30 13:45:26 LiveUpdate: new version 4.00 build 579 is available

2014.01.30 13:44:16 MetaTrader 4 build 509 started (MetaQuotes Software Corp.)


you can see the LiveUpdate is done, when I restart the terminal the update will be applied and the terminal should restart itself.

OK, it worked . . .
