I checked your image ... and I see that you are having the following files:

  • Heiken_Ashi_Smoothed.ex4' [2].mq4 (it is source code)
  • Heiken_Ashi_Smoothed.ex4' [2].ex4 (this file you received after compilling the source code in Metatrader, or after restarting Metatrader; Metatrader 4 is using ex4 files only - for information).

But according to your first post of the thread - your EA is not using Heiken_Ashi_Smoothed.ex4' [2].ex4 file.
Your EA is using Heiken_Ashi_Smoothed.ex4 file (because the names of the indicators are hard coded inside EAs).
So, it should be exact name: Heiken_Ashi_Smoothed.ex4

What to do?
Rename Heiken_Ashi_Smoothed.ex4' [2].mq4 to Heiken_Ashi_Smoothed.mq4 (right mouse click on the file - rename) and compile Heiken_Ashi_Smoothed.mq4 file in MetaEditor (or restart Metatrader).
After that - you will see Heiken_Ashi_Smoothed.ex4 file (and your EA "will see" this file, and everything will be fine with it).
