If I buy a EA and it says:
Activations: 5. Does it mean that i can use the EA just 5 diferent times?
No, it means that you can install it 5 times in different computers or in the same computer, after major windows updates or hardware upgrades.
After a major windows update or a hardware upgrade, your windows computer is described/coded as a new/different computer and all MQL5 Market purchases are uninstalled, so you need to install them again, consuming 1 activation.
Usually Metaquotes credits one extra activation after each major universal window update.
Win 10 have some issue, after win 10 update, 1 of activation will be disappeard.
If you are using win10, you can try to set win 10 update as false.
