MT5 to MT4 Set File Converter:

This script converts multiple .set files from MT5 format to MT4 format. This is a necessary step for optimizing and running cross-compatible EAs.

MetaTrader 5 is able to load .set files created in MT4, however, the format it saves set files in is not compatible with MetaTrader 4. This script acts as a useful tool to make .set files backwards compatible, so you can take advantage of MT5's better strategy tester then run a cross-compatible EA on MT4 and MT5 with the same parameters.

Two .set files have been attached as an example of the converter.

The "exampleMT5.set" file is produced by the MetaTreader 5 terminal. This is then converted to "exampleMT5-MT4.set" file by the converter.

I liked a MT5 indicator and converted it into MT4 set file using your script. But not sure how to use the MT4 set file without the MQL4/ex4 file.

How I can load the converted MT4 set file on MT4 chart without the MT4/ex4 files?

Is it possible to convert MQL5 file into MQL4 file?.
