When I compile MQL5 an EX5 file is created in the ...Teminal\long-unique-number\MQL5\experts folder.
I am using MT4 and so no EA appears in my navigator window, even if I move the EX5 file into ...Terminal\long-unique-number\MQL4\experts
Is it possible to use compiled MQL5 within MT4. Is a file renaming necessary?
1) My current broker doesn't support the use of MT5.
2) The debugging functionality of MQL4 seems no longer to function in later (current) builds of MT4 so I am unable to debug my MQL4 code.
My hope was that compiled MQL5 could be used within MT4 since, it appears the compiler in MetaEditor can differentiate both MQL4 AND MQL5.
You can use many of the same code from mql5 in mql4 and for the part that does not work it needs only little tweaking.
Those are usually related to the ordering functions and Indicator calls.
Have you complained at the Service Desk - I did, and the asked me to upgrade to b1052 which I did, but it is just the same.
If you want I can send you b1031 - there you can debug.
I'd appreciate the b1031.
If you can see the code . Try this. Copy and paste to an existing mt4 file and rename. Sometimes it works. Simple and fast. Hope this helps
