Hi,

since the last terminal update to 890 I do have several problems.

A serious one is that my tries to load the new-file of the week fails:

#import "wininet.dll"
   int InternetOpenUrlW(int,string,string,uint,uint,uint);
#import
  ...
  string strUrl = "http://www.forexfactory.com/ffcal_week_this.xml";
  string iAg = "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; Q312461)";
  int HttpOpen=InternetOpenW(iAg,0," "," ",0);
  uint x =     INTERNET_FLAG_NO_CACHE_WRITE 
             | INTERNET_FLAG_PRAGMA_NOCACHE
             | INTERNET_FLAG_RELOAD;   
  int HttpRequest = InternetOpenUrlW(HttpOpen,strUrl, NULL, 0, x, 0);
  ... // read the page
  if(HttpRequest>0) InternetCloseHandle(HttpRequest);
  if(HttpOpen>0) InternetCloseHandle(HttpOpen);

BTW the older version

InternetOpenUrlW(HttpOpen,strUrl, "0", 0, x, 0);

with "0" causes this error ERROR_HHTP_HEADER_NOT_FOUND. Now use NULL.

But even without this problem I get only the 404 Page not Found.

Anybody with an idea what to do?

  1. Check your return codes. Not at the bottom but right there. What are Function return values ? How do I use them ? - MQL4 forum and Common Errors in MQL4 Programs and How to Avoid Them - MQL4 Articles
  2. Do you really expect anything but 404 with the URL: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; Q312461)
  3. Why don't you use the built in WebRequest - MQL4 Documentation

add 1: I do check the Windows return code of all of my internet call (I skipped them here) they are all the time 0 = no error. But this way I found this error:  ERROR_HHTP_HEADER_NOT_FOUND caused by "0"

add 2: I normally tried just " " as agent it makes no difference!

add 3: a) I haven't thought of it. b) I couldn't imagine why the old code should stop working? c) Do we have to re-write all our codes after every update?

c) your suggestion isn't better at all:

string GrabWeb2(string strUrl, string rawFile, int debug=0) {//>4
   string cookie=NULL,headers;
   char post[],result[];
   int res, timeout=5000;
   strUrl = "http://www.server4you.de/vserver/";
   res=WebRequest("GET",strUrl,cookie,NULL,timeout,post,0,result,headers);
   if (res < 0) { Alert("Error in WebRequest. Error code  =",GetLastError()," = 4060 ERR_FUNCTION_NOT_CONFIRMED" );
       return("");
   } 
   string ret = CharArrayToString(result,0,-1);
   return(ret);
}

res becomes -1 and the error code is 4060 =

4060

ERR_FUNCTION_NOT_CONFIRMED

Function is not allowed for call


What to do?

You have two different problems. The error #4060 means that the URL is not on the "Allow WebRequest..." list in MT4's Tools / Options. It will be unrelated to the earlier problem using WinInet.

You are right, but from my viewpoint none of the mt4 options to load an internet page works.

I wont it work - no matter how!

The service desk told me that I have to separately allow the servers which I want to access in Terminal -> Tools -> Option -> Expert Advisor.

And I changed in my Error-function the return string for the 4060 Error to "function not confirmed / url not in Termial-Options"

Retrieval of http://www.forexfactory.com/ffcal_week_this.xml works for me using WebRequest provided that the URL is added to the list in Tools / Options.

And your GrabWeb() code from https://forum.mql4.com/62321#941970 also works for me.
