I am just glad it was not my fault or something to do with my codings.....
Not your error
Metatrader knows about it - some builds corrected that error some did not. And on some brokers it still exist and on another it does not. The usual mess
MT5 is anything but stable
Cases that it freezes your PC (not terminal but PC) are nothing strange to metatrader 5
New metatrader 4 starts even slower than metatrader 5 now. Not even crowded indicators folder and it takes eternity sometimes to start the terminal for the first time
No wonder - they are starting to use exactly the same machine
Now all we have to wait that the rest is executed as "fast" as on metatrader 5 and then we can freely go looking for other platform
Check your experts and scripts folder too - maybe something there causes the slowdown
I have a similar problem
It started with build 670. Bit too much indicators and experts and still very slow start
1) Just wondering what is your CPU & Memory usage/readings ????
2) How long actually did it took to upload and running ???
1. at one point it goes sky high
2. I do not measure it like that. I simply compare it to old build 509 and now metatrader starts at least 5 times slower (at least)
I have experience this situation before... after SIR MLADEN advice me to revisit/check my codes especially my own indicator... things work out OK...
May be you should load One indicator at a time to see what is the CPU reading and you could pin point which indicator took to longest to load...
just an advice....
I did check it and all is OK
Metatrader slowed down since the last build when the separated built in indicators to separate folders
