I'm trying to programatically go through multiple MT4 installation folders and print a summary of the EA settings for each. 

Which file in the the MT4 folder contains information about the attached EAs and their settings?

You'll find them in the .chr files in the profiles subfolders.

thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for! 

Is there an easy way to know if those settings have been synced with VPS? The only way I can think of is to compare the last modified date of the chr file to the timestamp of the latest sync, which is a bit tedious.
