I created a MetaQuotes Demo account a month ago to get beta updates for MT4. MT4 updated to the build 1127 but then it stopped updating (without any changes in MT4 setup). Of course I'm login to the MetaQuotes Demo account. Is a possibility to force LiveUpdate?

MT4 doesn't update

I have a very strange problem with build 1090 (no problem with build 1127).

I have a template, saved with an EA running on it (Moving Average EA), which doesn't apply correctly when applied to a chart with ChartApplyTemplate. When this same template is applied through MT4 GUI, it applies fine.

An while checking I discovered that a copy of this exact same template is applying fine by code and by hand ! Problematic template is "MMEA_131861550753490699.tpl", renamed to "MovingAverageEA_Template.tpl". They are attached.

I also attached a small script to attach the template to a chart by code. The templates needs to be placed in MQL4\Files, then just run the script on a chart.

  • Log for "wrong" template, attached by script : ChartApplyTemplate() returns true, but the EA doesn't start.

What is even more strange is a customer reported me it works on his side with build 1090. Can't find any logic. (I also tried with and without portable mode, and on several MT4 platforms).

If someone can try and report the results, I would appreciate.

I also have 1127, I suppose 1145 is not yet available.

I have been using Build 1126 (beta) for quite a long while now, because I also had same strange problems with build 1090. I no longer remember what those problems were however.

All I know is that once I tried the beta build it resolved it. Maybe you can experiment and see if it is the case for you.

Thanks Fernando. Yes I don't have this problem with build 1127, however all my customers still have build 1090 (it's only today they announced the new build will be released).

So the template problem is not a big deal, however it will be nice to have an explanation about this strange behaviour.

If this build has anything to do with points of compatibility with the latest builds of MT5, it is most probably going to be just as bungled and full of bugs!

I don't know. Build 1127 was very stable though.

    36 x  EURUSD M1 windows each with one of our indictors....

        MetaTrader 4.00 build 1090  memory usage    700Mb

        MetaTrader 4.00 build 1145 memory usage    2500Mb

I will report this to the service desk
