Im asked to generate a .set file in order to continue with a process of arbitration and i didn't find any reference on how to generate such file with the .set extension 


Could someone please tell me how can i put the following information on a .set file:-


(demo account login & password, trade server name or IP address, symbol, timeframe, and application settings saved as .set file)


Or should i just type it down as is


Thank you

Set file is a list of the EA inputs (F7 -> inputs -> save.) None of your values. Just write it down as a txt file.

What @whroeder1 said is correct: none of the values you mentioned go into a .set file.

However, you can put your values in a .ini file for "startup."

In particular, look to the section called [common].
