I wanted to start a mt4 at the location: C:\Users\cas\Documents\MT4\mt5.
But as you can see the starting process
If I stop this mt4 (C:\Users\cas\Documents\MT4\mt5) because after 5 Minutes it hasn't come up and after that I get normal results of cpu usage:
My first ides was that the indicator I am working on has been trapped in an endless loop - but no!
I placed in OnInit() a "return(INIT_FAILED);" and re-compiled it - so I am sure that it is not a loop of a program!
Beside that I don't understand why the System requires all of a
sudden 16% and the other MT4 that are running are effected as well: 7% instead of 3% and 5% instead of 3% and 2%.
I can repeat this any time since now :(
Did anyone experience it that way?
Thanks in advance!!

Hi Carl! Probably you have charts opened with other indicators which you don't expect.
This will help:
- close the problematic MT4
- navigate into the data-folder of this MT4
- go into the profiles folder of the data-folder
- go into the folder with the name of the profile. If you don't work with profiles then the folder name is "default"
- delete all files with names like "chart01.chr"
- start this MT4 again
THe MT4 should now start with no opened charts.
It's almost certainly not the answer to your problem but, in case anyone else experiences something similar ... I've had MT4 freeze repeatedly on start-up after copying an MT4 installation from one machine to another machine with a larger screen resolution and a different (higher) DPI setting.
I've no longer got an exact record of the solution, but, through trial and error, it involved removing one of the [BarState_xx] sections from the config.ini. I think it was [BarState_81]. My guess is that the saved positioning of the sub-panels was causing a problem after the transition to a different screen resolution.
