my mt4 is updated to Build 600, but now the backtesting does not work!
I checked the folder Tester/Hystory and is it is empty, even after I made several attempts to download historical data from History Centre .
It seems that something goes wrong during the donwload OR during the history files generation process.
Please, could you fix the problem or provide instructions to overcome the issue?
Why such a long translations do, it does not make sense, just an annoyance. (Polish.lng)
"I continue to be amazed by the ability of the Metaquotes company to steam roll their users with their automatic updates that introduce massive changes that should only belong within an Alpha release. This week the MetaTrader 4 platform has been updated to build 600+ on many brokers – via an automatic process that does not even ask the user – breaking a lot of previous functionality and making a lot of indicator and expert advisor implementations completely useless. Imagine if you’re trading something live and suddenly it gets completely killed by a platform update (that you didn’t even ask for) that simply changes the entire way in which the programming language functions and interacts with other programs. Within this post I will share with you some tips to deal with the latest Metaquotes joke on Forex traders, giving you some information that will hopefully help you avoid any chaos in the short term and eventually migrate your implementations in the longer term."
I disagree. Brokers need to shoulder the responsibility. The Metaquotes upgrade procedure has problems, but it is manageable if you are prepared for it. Brokers have a choice to inform and prepare their clients for upgrades or not. Metaquotes doesn't have the traders' contact details to do this. Likewise some developers were prepared with updated versions of their products in advance of this upgrade. Others, not so much...
I think MQ shot themselves in the foot by implementing mandatory updates. The larger tech corporations such as Microsoft and Adobe give the user such options as:
1) Ask my permission before downloading new updates.
2) Download new updates but do not install without my permission.
2) Allow automatic updates.
They do this for a reason, to avoid lawsuits.

MQ can distribute all kinds of their content in the terminal on several tabs it is very unfortunate that they can't do this only with the info on updates.
Who cares for their marketing stuffs when the main functionality has several problems? They should not have force the users to pay the price of debugging.
Normal company does not provide info on what will not work in the info after release.
Prepare for upgrade practically means suspend trading until new bugs are fixed.
read more than the first line.
perhaps after using these softwares for a time you will meet several notices, forms and questions to agree before the
automatic updates are allowed, performed, etc.
Amen to that brother.
