this build does not pickup my previous MT4 DATA FOLDER. (C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal ....)
Now it defaults to C:\Program Files\MetaTrader 4\

Is it a bug ?
What can I do to set it to my previous MT4 DATA FOLDER ?

The folder depends on how you install and start the terminal. You do not set it to anything.

Open it and verify it is where you think it should be. Move your files to the correct location.

A few years ago I created a news indicator that loads forexfactory news calendar into a graphical panel.

Since 1220, it crashes MT4.  0 compilation errors and no MT4 error log.  Last time compiled was March, and that version still runs fine.

I know is vague description, but what could be the cause ?  Any changes for graphical panels in 1220 ?

By blanking out statements, MT4 seems to crash on the create statement.

CAppDialog        m_newspanel;

OnInit : createnewspanel(0,"News Panel",0,X_STARTnews,Y_STARTnews,X_SIZEnews,Y_SIZEnews);

bool createnewspanel(const long chart,const string name,const int subwin,

                            const int x1,const int y1,const int x2,const int y2)



-> crash MT4
