I have many indicators, scripts and EAs. I know that MT4 needs  the following architecture:

MQL4>Experts > EAs

MQL4>Indicators > Indicators

MQL4>Scripts > Scripts

There can be folders within as well! For example:

MQL4>Experts>EAgroup1>EA1

MQL4>Experts>EAgroup1>EA2

MQL4>Experts>EAgroup2>EA3

MQL4>Experts>EAgroup2>EA4

MQL4>Indicators > IndicatorGroup1>Indi1

MQL4>Indicators > Scalpers>Indi2

MQL4>Indicators > Scalpers>Indi3

But what about EAs which depend on some indicators? Will the EAs work if the indicators are within subfolders? Does Metatrader4 look for indicators recursively within the subfolder structure?

No, you have to specify the path, starting from Indicators folder, for example : \\Scalpers\\Indi2

Once you have installed your EA but it wont appear under experts advisors try this: 

If you go through and find your Forex platform mine is c:, program files x86, [then your forex platform] mine is Think Forex, mql4, experts. There should be your EA file.

Open your Forex platform then click file, open data folder, MQL4, experts. Have both windows open so you can drag and drop the EA file from the first step into the experts file that you just opened. Close your Forex account and reopen then click expert advisors and there it is.

Hope that helps, it worked for me.
