Hi Coders!

I have an .ex4 file (Expert Advisor). How can I decide it use MQL4 or MQL5 library?

Thank you in advance.

The Build 600+ Expert Advisor use MQL5 library too, doesn't it?

Anyway, I would like to check the .ex4 - it is Build 600+ or not.

How can I try it? The latest build MetaTrader can run the 600+ .ex4 files and the earlier build number versions too.

I have an .ex4 file. I would like to know, it is a build 600+ or an earlier version (Build 509) of Expert Advisor.

Open your .ex4 with an editor. You can see the Copyright xxx on the first line if it's compiled with build <=509.

Also it seems build <=509 start with "EX4", build >=600 with "EX-".
