Hello, I am trying to download the demo version of libraries from the Market and test them in the strategy tester.  I hae read this: https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/586 but it dod not help in my case. I am aware you can download libraries in the market  directly in the mt5 terminal or from the mql5.com website.  I believe I have done so.  The terminal said it was "installing" the free libraries from the market, and now the "purchased" tab looks like this.

 

However, my terminal_dir\MQL5\Libraries folder is empty. Also, when I try to use these libraries in an expert advisor run in the strategy tester, I get errors like this...

2013.12.19 03:31:04.226 MQL5 file 'LibCustomChart.ex5' not found

or

2013.12.18 04:53:50.906 MQL5 file 'svMachineTool_demo.ex5' not found

or

2013.12.18 04:52:42.604 MQL5 file 'svMachineTool.ex5' not found


 I believe I used #import correctly and used the correct library names.  For example, trying to run this EA in the strategy tester immediately aborts with an error like the ones above,

Buying a trading robot on MQL5 Market has a distinct benefit over all other similar options - an automated system offered can be thoroughly tested directly in the MetaTrader 5 terminal. Before buying, an Expert Advisor can and should be carefully run in all unfavorable modes in the built-in Strategy Tester to get a complete grasp of the system...
