for a better overview I sorted my indicators in seperate folders. Now the EA can't find this indicators with iCustom Function, because he is searching direct in MQL4\indicators-path.

What can I do?

check terminal->File->open data Folder.

Read in the Docs about the new file structure (at the end)

You need to change the iCustom call(s) in your EA to reflect the new path to your indicator(s):

From iCustom


[in]  Custom indicator compiled program name, relative to the root indicators directory (MQL4/Indicators/). If the indicator is located in subdirectory, for example, in MQL4/Indicators/Examples, its name must be specified as "Examples\\indicator_name" (double backslash "\\"must be specified as separator instead of a single one).

  1. Make sure you put it in the right location. Data Structure in MetaTrader 4 Build 600 and Higher - MQL4 Articles 17.02.2014
  2. If it is in MQL4\Indicators the iCustom call should have no path specified. Detailed explanation of iCustom - MQL4 forum
