I just downloaded MT4 on my PC running Windows 10 - Version 10.0.16299 - Build 16299.
I'm trying the basic task of adding expert indicators, which requires that I go to File > Open Data Folder. However, when doing so, I get an error stating "This App Can't Run on Your PC" with a suggestion that I talk to the software provider. I've sent a question to MQL5.com, and they told me it's a Windows issue. I contacted Microsoft, and they told me to un/reinstall, which I did, and then told me that it's a software issues and not their problem.
Has anyone experienced this? I'm just getting started in trading and I don't want any roadblocks preventing me from using the tools that should be available to all of us.
Retarded Windows can't open it's own file explorer. Install this (64 bit):
Then open it and find C:/Users/<your name>/AppData/Roaming/MetaQuotes/Terminal/
For every MetaTrader installed on your PC there should be a weird name folder there. That is what opens on File/Open Data Folder
I tried what you suggested, but no AppData folder was visible when opening in the .exe file. I searched in Windows 10 for %appdata% and it came up through the search menu. I thought maybe it was hidden otherwise, and when I tried to sort out if I could then browse my way to it, the <your name> folder, as well as the whole Users folder, managed to go missing. I don't know where it's gone, or wtf happened. Going to contact Windows to try to get that back, I guess. Then I will try what you mentioned again, but AppData wasn't one of those options.
Update. Fixed my issue with the Users folder. Can you please further explain what I am to do with the .exe file that you suggested that I download? I installed it in the folder that you suggested, but it did not solve the problem of not being able to Open Data Folder.
I believe it is Version 4.00 Build 1090.
I am the current administrator account, and I would preferably not need to create a new account and migrate all my stuff over.
I don't know what /portable key in the command line means. Sorry, I'm not entirely savvy.
I had the same issue with MT5.After trying many things unuccesfully, I launched Microsoft system fix utility, as suggested on MS forum:https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-power/this-app-cant-run-on-your-pc/d4869176-98fa-45b7-baf9-23c083335148
I opened a Command Prompt as administrator and ran "sfc /scannow", rebooted and now everything works again, with File Explorer being correctly launched again.
OPen Windows PoweShell(administry). run sfc /scannow
