I am trying to launch the Strategy Tester from a command line.I am using the steps indicated in the Client Terminal help, section Tools-Configuration at Startup.I created a ma0.ini file as in the help example, I placed it in the terminal \config folder and a the ma0.set in the Terminal\<guid>\tester folder.
; start strategy tester
I run from a command shell, as suggested in the help file, this:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MetaTrader - my broker>terminal.exe config\ma0.ini
the terminal opens but nothing happens and no MovingAverageReport.htm file is generated.What am I missing?
I realized that the config folder is not the one under the program files folder
C:\Program Files (x86)\MetaTrader - my broker>
but instead the one in the <user name> terminal folder, like this:
C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\<your GUID>
After moving the .ini file there, it works.Maybe the documentation should mention this behavior when installing MT4 in AppData...
