I need to find a solution to buy me some time.
My EA doesn't work well with the new versions.....so i need to prevent updates for say only a month or so. So i have time to rectify my EA problems.
Any suggestions would be gratefully received.
Untested, but will probably work: change the security permissions on the directory where the update files are downloaded so that nothing has permission to write files in it. That will probably prevent MT4 from downloading the update, but it will probably then continue regardless.
Can be done either through the Windows Explorer GUI, or from the command line:
cacls <directory> /D Everyone
The issue is that different versions of MT4 can use different update directories. The "current" one is %appdata%\MetaQuotes\WebInstall, but I think that there is at least one other which may be in use/usable.
Thanks for the advice. We have implemented this now... lets see what happens
I'm not trying to be difficult... but you yourself are persisting in documenting the HST format despite the MetaQuotes CEO telling you that the format of HST files is for their own private use only. How is this different? Why is one a legitimate subject for discussion, and the other not?
