  1. Verify you are putting it in the correct "indicator folder." Open the <dataFolder>\MQL4\Indicators and verify.

I don't think that you are putting them in the indicator folder.

thank everyone.

you have two set of files, i believe you put the ex4 files in the mt4 where you download it, right ? this won't work you have to go to if you are ruining windows platform ( the file with your name on it or whatever you named your computer) then you have to show the hidden files... a folder called (Appdata) will appear.. click it then you will have a folder with two others i guess called (Roaming)... there you will see all the apps you have on your computer choose metaQoutes ...as below:

C:\Users\Salah\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\DA3C92B1779898CC0CACD726A655BECB\MQL4\Indicators

here you can paste the ex4 files... be sure to close the mt4 before doing that to apply the changes.



hope this will help because i learned that the hard way before... cheers.

No need, just Navigator → Right Click → Refresh after the paste.
