I've noticed the folders have been moved around.
I downloaded mt4 from xm because it's the easiest way to get it for my Mac.
I cannot locate my MQL4 folder. I'm trying to add custom indicators. On Mac you cannot go to file - open data folder etc
I go to Finder > XM > show package contents > Contents > Resources > Wine Prefix > drive_c > Program Files >XM MT4 Then there's no MQL4 folder.
Anyone has insight about this?
Download fake file.I tried to download the Metetrader4 platform several times from this link
in this page - https://www.metatrader4.com/en/trading-platform
and other one - https://www.metatrader4.com/en/download
Unfortunately the downloaded file is always the one of the MT5 although the file is called MT4setup.Is all this normal or is it a mistake?
Sporadic error after upgrading to build 1090 from 1010 (on Windows 7): Cannot load custom indicator
I have been using an expert which invokes a custom indicator I have written. I run the expert on 20 different currency pairs within 1 instance of Metatrader on 1 minute chart. I have been running it for 2+ years, and it worked without a problem on build 1010. When I upgraded to build 1090 3 months ago, I recompiled the old MQL4 file in the new MetaEditor. The expert works smoothly for some time (from 3 hours to 2 days), but after that, starts showing an error
"cannot load 'C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\EC9D8D9041604A622918A76F04398973\MQL4\indicators\IndicatorName.ex4". If I restart Mt4, the expert again works smoothly for a few hours to a couple of days.
Since the problem occurs only after running the expert for some time, one possibility I considered was that the error occurred on account of differences in memory management in build 1090 (versus build 1010).
I also read here (https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/193992) that Windows 10 64 bit is strongly recommended - I am still on Windows 7. The documentation available for changes introduced between builds 1010 and 1090 is very sparse. I reached out to the Service Desk and also to Metaquotes via my broker (Oanda), giving specifics of the hardware I use as well, but the responses received have not been specific enough to help me solve the problem. They did ask me to confirm that the processor supports SSE2, which it does, and to confirm that the hardware requirement was met. Response received from Metaquote also indicated that Windows 7 is supported.
Please advise if anyone else has encountered a similar error or faced other performance issues using build 1090 on Windows 7? Is switching to Windows 10 indeed 'strongly recommended'?
I was wondering how to use the Meta Trader 4 platform? It seems when I try to download the MT4 it gives me MT5 and I am not wanting MT5 is there someone who can help answer this question?
Ohhhh I'm so happy now, metatrader updated.... hahaha
Apologies for following up on this. Has anyone faced issues using build 1090 on Windows 7? Windows 7 is officially supported, but per https://www.mql5.com/en/forum/193992 , Win 10 64 bit is strongly recommended.
Thanks in advance
