how you did know, which document is old and which document is new?
did you see any document, comparing old and new precedence rules?
are you running real money with your code?
not polite answer..
1) I read the forum.
2) I give you the old rules. Would you like me to tell you how to find the new rules as well?
3) Yes, been doing so for years now.
4) Sorry you feel that way.
Who are these people who are blaming MQ for stealth updates of third-party products via DLLs? Where are the posts about it on this forum?
This forum is full of people blaming MQ for a forced but non-stealth update of their own product, and investigating the issues. To use another phrase of your own, you seem to be going "off topic"
My point was that your post was materially inaccurate: you said DLLs but you meant "Allow DLL imports". This kind of inaccuracy - presumably deliberate - seems to be what you yourself call "scare tactics"
I believe lack of communication is part of the problem. My broker was under the impression this update would only affect MQL4 developers and that all previously compiled ex4 applications would be totally compatable with the upgrade.
For this reason they did not make a big deal about it. I received only a single communication from them, it appeared in the mail tab of MT4. I did not recieve any regular email.
Here is the communication minus the brokers name:
Who said anything about anyone being forced to trade real money with it?
"production software being pushed to users via silent/forced updates"
My live account was updated without any interaction on my part. If that is not a silent/forced update then we are clearly not speaking the same language.
What exaclty is the purpose of the software if it is not for trading real money and why do brokers offer it for trading on live accounts?
