Hi there,

I just installed MT4 on win 8 and it appears as below!

As you can see the buttons and text are TINY!

Can anyone please assist!? LOL.

Follow the instructions here, substituting terminal.exe.manifest instead of adobe products.

Hi there,


This issue has returned since installing Tick Data Suite (http://eareview.net/tick-data-suite).  Part of the Tick Data Suite installation is to place a copy of the tds.exe file in the MetaTrader folder where the terminal.exe and therefore the terminal.exe.manifest file is.  I tried putting a tds.exe.manifest file there too and the issue continued.


I emailed support at http://eareview.net/tick-data-suite and there is no know resolution.


Is there something else I can do?


Kind regards,

brad.

You can change the resolution on your system to a different one.  That part would be under your control panel.

You have to get your desktop out first.  I have vista and it is easy for me.  I had to look it up to see that Windows 8 makes this a lot harder than it has to be.

Edit: corrected post so link works as a link

Changing the resolution doesn't help.  This is explained in detail in the link honest_knave posted, and is what I originally thought this issue was.

Hopefully the issue will resolve with upgrading to Win 10!

Otherwise, does anyone have any other ideas please?

The resolution idea was all I had, sorry.
