I downloaded an EA from the marketplace for MT4. 

But on downloading, EA gets placed in the SCRIPT folder, so won't load onto a chart. I tried moving it to the EXPERTS folder, but when I tried to put it on a chart the journal states it is not an EA.

I've spoken to the developer, who has had no trouble loading it correctly.

Any ideas what is going on?  I've had previous issues with McAffee anti virus which kindly deleted my terminal file, but I solved that ok.

If the system understands it as a script so it may be the script ...

Anyway, check the downloading procedure once again -
