Due to ESMA and FCA restrictions I was forced to change brokers to keep my 500:1 leverage. I thought I would look at Markets (comments not welcome on them please). However all my machines run Vista and since there is no support anymore they don't supply an older version. Does anyone have one please?
The ones I use were supplied from X and Y and will not allow me to find any other servers.
If there are recommendations to other brokers feel free to comment here. Thanks.
Are you sure you can't find servers from File/Open Account (not File/Log In)?
Alternatively you can copy terminal.exe into another folder and run it, it should download all the other files and run like a copy downloaded from MetaQuotes in the good old days.
No doesn't work. tried the X version and the Y version. They just see themselves no other brokers.
ok that suggestion sounds promising. Can you walk me through how to do that? I'll use the X one as I stopped using that one. I see the Terminal file in the main folder once I open it. where should I copy it to?
I realised what you meant. I created a new folder and dropped it in. Opened it and program opens up. did a broker search but it will not find any!!?? It says upgrade to internet explorer 8 or higher now!
You should probably upgrade IE, either from update manager or MSFT site.
Firefox is the best browser ever made. It is MetaTrader that is using IE, part of it actually. You can install IE and disable it in Programs/Windows Components.
It might be an issue with firewall or antivirus, you may check those settings as well.
Windows 10 is awful, especially on older machines. It does whatever it wants in the least desirable moments and it will grind your HDD/SSD to death much sooner than you'd expect. It's probably worse than Vista itself. Windows 8.1 is more viable option, but also not so much to be worth paying for. If license is an issue Linux is the best alternative.
