alinuxtrader: How to force to use an older version of mt4, when it is automatically updated to the current one offered by a broke (Build 1212 in my case) ?

You have to revoke permissions on the directory where the live update files are placed to prevent it from taking place. This requires good "power user" knowledge of the operating system to do this. I do not recommend this for average users.

Hi everyone, does anybody know of a way, to prevent auto updates? Any registry tweaking or whatever? I'm running MT5 on two machines...

I prefer to delete WebInstall folder and replace it with an empty file named WebInstall

It prevents downloading update.


But I had an issue, I had to pay extra bandwidth usage because MT is trying forever to download the update and loop.

Also it seems the "Live Update" entry is not always shown in MT4 journal window but only in the log file.

Terminal Auto Update Lock (MT4)

Renat Fatkhullin , 2015.06.02 12:28

Do not try to block updates, please.

Get wild constant repetitive traffic with pumped updates, and then the eternal ban on IP in our services. This applies to all services that consider themselves smarter than the rest and do not understand what they are doing.

Released release - upgrade and continue working. Please note that blocking updates, as well as the operation of the terminal, is a direct violation of the license to use the terminal.
