Hi,


I assume, you have 2 MT4 installations on 1 Server/PC.


Copy:

Go to MT4 broker2 and open menu File - Open Data Folder.

As a result you will get an Explorer window with a file structure.

Your EA is in the MQL4 / Experts directory and has the extension .ex4.

In case, you are also using DLLs/Includes (with extension .mqh typically), also these files need to be considered. Location is MQL4 / Include.

The easiest way to handle this, is to copy the full MQL4 tree as long as you do not fear any same filenames with newer dates/versions for broker1.


Paste:

After that, open MT4 broker1 Data folder as decribed above.

Paste the MQL4 folder to this directory structure.

Close the MT4 broker1 and restart.

Assign the ea to a newly opened chart window (maybe the symbols are named differently in both brokers).

Should work immediately.
