Hello,

After this recent update, I am now unable to capture the call count from one instance of my MT4 terminal to relay it onto another MT4.

Use the SRC button to place code, otherwise the moderators are just going to delete it!

Also, read the many other threads that have mentioned that the "A" functions are no longer supported and you will have use the "W" Wide versions of the functions such as "CreateNamedPipeW" instead of "CreateNamedPipeA".

Thank you for replying and my apologies for not pasting the SRC as a file.

With regards to your response, does this mean I simply need to change the named pipes "A" reference to a "W" instead? I tried looking up some threads regarding this but was unable to find - your help is much appreciated. Thanks again.

It is not pasting the source as a file, but using the SRC tool to place code here on the forum. How to use the SRC button. (provided by "RaptorUK")

Here are a couple of references to similar dilemmas with the Wide version of Functions:

Thank you. The server side now is able to capture the call count after updating the named pipes "A" to "W'. However, from the other instance of the MT4, it appears to have trouble receiving the input of information. I've updated the name pipes to 'W' on the receiving end but it still fails to pull the data for some reason. Any ideas? See below for the code on the receiving end:

Just as an advanced notice, I've changed the code to call upon MetaTerminal1 in the extern string PipeName but the data and functions still do not work properly. Was there anything else with the code that needed to be adjusted except for changing the 'A' to 'W' for 'CreateNamedPip' and 'CreateFile' ?

Changing "A" to "W" might seem to be too easy. There may be other factors with regard to changes in the new architecture and the Unicode functions that need to be addressed too.

However, I do not know if this is a bug or not, because I have never used Named Pipes with MT4, but your "inBuffer" and "outBuffer" (in "CallNamedPipeW") are of different types (one is "string" and the other is "int"). That does not seem to be correct.

Actually scratch that, it may be totally correct given MetaTrader's strange tricks to accomplish DLL interaction.

I will leave that part to someone who is more versed in MT4 to DLL interfacing.

"sksyen", could you change your original post to have the code in a SRC section. If one of the moderators goes over this, they will delete that part of the post and ask you to do it properly anyway. So, do it now before you have to go hunting for the code again to paste it in.

I'm also having issues with named pipes in the latest release of MT4

I changed WaitNamedPipeA to WaitNamedPipeW and that is now working

f (!WaitNamedPipeW( FullPipeName, 1))

{
Comment(TimeToStr(TimeLocal(), TIME_DATE|TIME_MINUTES|TIME_SECONDS) + " " + PipeName + " not available"); 
Sleep(1000);
continue;
}


but when I use either CreateFileA or CreateFileW, both calls just permanently hang


PipeHandle = CreateFileA(FullPipeName, GenericRead, 0, NULL, OPEN_EXISTING, 0, NULL);


Any ideas / solutions ?
