For those of you who have agents running on a windows 10 machine, make sure your account is still linked after doing the latest windows update, i just found out that for the last 3-4 days i was providing agents for free :D


Not a big deal but i thought i would let you all know.

Windows 10 Fall Creators Update to make saved MetaTrader passwords invalid

MetaQuotes Software Corp., 2017.10.18 12:55

On October 17, Microsoft officially released a major update of their operating system Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. This update affects configurations and encryption keys similar to the installation of a new Windows operating system. In order to protect user information, the MetaTrader platform binds all data to the operating system and hardware of the computer, on which it is installed. This protection method ensures that even if the platform files are stolen, hackers will not be able to access the trader's accounts or to use products purchased from the Market.

Unfortunately, after the installation of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, all trading account passwords stored on your computer will become invalid. We highly recommend that you prepare for the new Windows release and save your passwords in a safe place, in order to be able to connect to your accounts after the update.

Also, the launch of installed and activated applications that were purchased from the Market will not be possible due to the change of encryption keys. Such products will require a new activation, because all products are bound to an operating system. We will automatically provide an additional activation for all products purchased from the Market regardless of the operating system, similar to providing additional activations after the previous release of Windows 10 Creators Update. So MetaTrader Market users will not lose product activations after the installation of Windows 10 Fall Creators Update.

Activations of demo products will also be lost, and you will need to re-download such applications from the Market.
