I bought a EA for MT4, and it seems to be working but uninstalls when I open a different MT4 account. The EA is registered for only one account.

Is there a way around this? I tried installing a second instance of MT4 but it just seems to overwrite the existing one, keeping all my accounts.

Cheers

It depends on where you bought EA:

- if on MQL5 Market so - use activations;

- if on some other website - ask the author of this EA.

You are trying to be a thief. It is registered for one account. Buy another license for another account.

If you want to run two accounts simultaneously, you must install a second terminal. Don't use the default location.

I probably didn't word my question correctly, but I was having trouble with the EA when I tried to log into a 2nd account which I use for other trading ideas. NOT to run the EA on the second account!

How do I install a second terminal, to keep any automated accounts separate? For example, I don't want the same charts when I log into a second account. I have searched for this issue but not found the answer yet.

Ignore the above comment! Last time I tried, the mt4 installation wouldn't let me specify a folder location, but I've bought a new computer, and now it does!
