See the first page of this forum thread for a detailed solution. You have the wrong folder structure, the indicators must be in "Downloads", but just changing the folder name from "My Indicators" to "Downloads" might make it work.

This is how the files should be placed.

MQL5/
|--Include/
   |--alexstal_outsidebar
|--Indicators/
   |--Downloads/
      |--fastzz
      |--swingchart
      |--alexstal_zigzagprof
      |--HarmonicPatternFinderV2


This is so because the HarmonicPatternFinderV2 makes use of the ZigZag indicator to extract tops and bottoms, and it expects the ZigZag indicators to be located in the "Downloads" folder. In principle, the HarmonicPatternFinderV2 can be placed anywhere though, it is only important that the ZigZags are findable.

Hi,


I won't rewrite the indicator in mql4, as I only use MT5 myself. There are already existent harmonic pattern finding indicators for MT4 though, like the ZUP which can be gounf online.

Most likely you have, keep in mind that the ZigZags must be compiled in addition to being placed in the correct folders.

You are not the only one who have had this issue though, and the common cause is language adaptations on your mt5 terminal. So the word "Downloads" can be translated into your local language resulting in a different folder structure on your system. Meanwhile the file paths "Downloads\\zigzag-name" is hardcoded into the indicator at about line 300. Therefore you must either change this or create the folder structure as discussed previously in this thread.

Its not like I can do anything about it because changing it one way destroys it for the others and vice versa. So out of the box I would only expect it to work on the English language version of MT5. The fix is valid though as others have managed to get it working by following the advice.
