I'm updating an EA, I just change my reference site but I get:  Validation completed with an errors

test on EURUSD,H1 (netting)

 tester stopped because OnInit failed

there are no trading operations 


but before I loaded without problems...

I tried to load an Expert Advisor created using MQL5 Wizard and I had the same result.


Can someone help me?

Thank you for the time dedicated to me

The only difference with mt5 platform installation that I have done are the junction on other hard disk (not ssd) to decrease the wear.

I post the code I have used to testing with same result:
