·http://files.metaquotes.net/metaquotes.software.corp/mt5/mql64.exe — 64 bit version.

 Thank you very much. Do you know where I can get it for mt4?

Both are for mt4. But they have not been updated for quite a while, you should compile using the Metaeditor.

Yes and no. Ovo you are right you can compile mq4 to ex4 but these compilers do not 'understand' some old mt4 functions!!

To be honest, I never noticed any limits or differences between MQL.exe and Metaeditor.exe (except processing time, which is longer with Metaeditor), just one day I reconfigured the batch to use the latter, because they did not update mql.exe with new builds any longer.

If the current Metaeditor.exe does not "understand some old mt4 functions" then it is likely the features are no longer supported and you should not be using them with current builds.

Metatrader have dropped support for the old mql.exe command line compiler and only support Metaeditor.exe command line for recent builds


I put in a request to Metatrader support and got a response from them on this subject (see this similar forum thread)

Metatrader Support :  You can compile sources this way:

metaeditor.exe /compile:<path to source> [/inc:<path to MQL folder>] [/log]

If /log key used - journal would be appeared in the same folder with source.
