MetaTrader 5 Build 1700: Synthetic Instruments, Shared Projects and MQL5
MQL5: New online service MQL5 Cloud Protector has been added to provide additional
protection for MQL5 programs. Protection is similar to the option used in the largest store of trading applications MetaTrader
Market, where the EX5 product files submitted by sellers are additionally compiled
to native code.Now, this type of protection is available to all platform
users. To protect your files, execute the following command in MetaEditor: Tools—MQL5 Cloud Protector. The only difference of MQL5
Cloud Protector from the mechanism used in the Market, is that the file is not linked to the user's computer. Protected via MQL5 Cloud
Protector files can be run on any computers similar to common EX5 files.
MQL5 Cloud Protector is a secure service. Additional protection is only applied to a compiled file. The source code is not passed to the
service. At the first step, a program is compiled to an EX5 file on the user's computer; after that the compiled file is sent over an
encrypted channel to the service, where it is protected and returned to the user.
