Try reading the first answer of this thread.
hi whroeder1, thanks for your answer.
do you refer (as first answer of the thread) to the following answer, i quote:
"you still can download the MT4. but only from the brokers, not from MQL5.COM"?
If the case, that is exactly what i did and said that i did. More details: i tried ECN, FXDD, PepperStone, and a couple others. All downloads exe will install MT5 for me...
Can you indicate several brokers specifically where i can download a MT4 install please?
Thank you for any guidance.
You can't! They are just not compatible! They will have to be converted.
For any Indicator, Script or EA for which you have Source Code, they will have to be converted by a coder that knows what he is doing.
For those that you only have ".ex4" files, you will either have to contact the authors or simply scrap them (or have someone recreate new ones with similar functionality)!
As for templates, I have never compared the differences or tried to convert them myself, but they most probably also require conversion or simply be recreated manually, which is probably the easiest method.
Thanks for your reply. That's what I was afraid the answer would be.
