Dear all,

After some years without touching mql code I decided to create an easy EA to help my current strategy. Sadly I see log files in MT4 are not in the same place they used to be in the past. I create log files to identify erros and/or malfunctions and I used to finding them at:

My PC / Metaquotes / Terminal / Alotofnumbersandletters / logs

But apparently they are in a different folder. Could someone please help me?

Thank you very much in advance.

Sorry, my instructions were unclear. You need to click higher... on one of the entries in the log, not on the actual tab.

You are clicking in the wrong place. Right-click inside the area of the logs (green area in attached image), NOT on the tabs (red area)!

Got it! Thank you. Unfortunately, I can confirm that's the same folder I identified in my first message. For a reason I don't understand, my log file isn't there. I can see all logs created by MT4 everyday except mine. Any help?

Thank you all in advance

Close and Restart the Application (or even reboot your PC)!

How did you create your log file?

Did you check "MQL4\Files" folder?
