Dear Sir/Madam


I have customs indicators for mt4 platform, that I have downloaded from the net. The forum owner says its an EA and I have copied it under c:/program files/broker mt4/experts folder. when I restart my mt4 platform, I can't locate the EA ( its not shown) under "Navigator Tab". I have even copied it under c:/program files/broker mt4/experts/indicators/ and still, its nt shown under "customs indicator" as I thought maybe it could be a customs indicator. Could you please advise me as to how I can fix this problem?

I'm not sure if this information will help: I run Windows 7 professional, 32 bit, 2gb memory,2ghz Amd processor, hp laptop. My broker is FXCM, mt 4, version 4.00, build 600.

A total number of custom indicators that I have is 52. Is there a limit to customs indicators that I can have? If so, what is the limit?

I have attached that EA/indicator so as to check if there are problems.

Kind Regards


Abie

This is an indicator, not an EA. You have to place it in Indicators sub-folder.

See this procedure : https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/149368

ty,

Do you like SPAM ? why publish your email address on an open Forum ?

Where did you copy your EA to ? what folder ?


What folder do you get when you click File > Open Data Folder ?

No . . . please do as I suggested and see what happens, just try with one Indicator to test . . . then when you see it works you can copy over all your other Indicators and then come back here and say . . . "thank you"
