Hello Peoples,

Please; - it it safe to attempt to install an Indicator hich was written in MT4 into an MT5 system?

I ask this as I have browsed associated documentation... but cannot find a specific answer.

I have find (alleged) "MT5 Installs" with MT4 extensions - this is somewhat alarming!

I obviousy require the Indicator to function correctly and do not wish to corrupt the MT5 installation.

Perhaps I am being over-cautious; - but better safe than sorry, so your advice please.

Regards, John

Safe and useless.
  1. You can put the file in the proper location but it won't show up because of the wrong extension.
  2. I doubt it would run if all you do is change the extension.

THank you for your response.
I would just like to empahasize that I did NOT attempt to change the extensions....
there are a few websites offering (alleged) MT5 Indicator dowloads which have MT4 extensions!
