I had MT4 installed and running on my Windows 7 for a long time. Suddenly today, after update to build 625, it won't open. I tried downloading and installing a new version but same issue.

When I run terminal.exe, it flashes something and then it closes. I see nothing in task manager. I can still run metaeditor.exe.

You have not attached anything.

I have the same exact issue on my desktop. The terminal opens for barely half a second and then directly shuts down. No error in the log file. It only happens since the update. I was looking at metatrader on my laptop a little bit later, the automatic update took place and it did the same thing as on my desktop. Now i can't start metatrader on both of the computers. Restarting computer or reinstalling metatrader didn't work...

Thank you for the link @angevoyageur

From what i read it comes from the anti virus. I do have the same on both my machines but i cannot uninstall it so i will wait for a new release that fix this conflict. Glad to know they are working on it though.

Thanks for the replies and hopefully would get a quick fix soon from Metquotes team.

Updates: I wasn't able to attach the log file, hence copy pasted the log in my first post.

OS: Windows 7 Service Pack 1 ..64bit

Antivirus: Symantec Endpoint Protection

I'm also facing the same issue with penguin80. I have the same configuration as well.
