Yes, the number 32 makes sense, assuming the the operating system is 32-bit.

LOL...that has nothing to do. 32 is a limit imposed by Metaquotes for all systems (32 or 64 bits). It could be 18 or 47.

Is 32 the the number of how many times I can start the same terminal.exe? What if I (just an example) install the mt5 (or mt4) 50 times in 50 different folders and start each terminal separately? Do I have the same limit?

AFAIK, you can't start several times from the same terminal.exe.

Anyway it's 32 running instances of terminal.exe

Tested.

I installed 40 terminals, but only 32 started. 


Then I created another user on the Win2012 server and started another 32 terminals.

It looks that if user can't see list of all tasks, you can start 32 terminals per user.

 

At the end of the experiment, I had 2 users logged in with total of 64 terminals running.  Each terminal had only one pair in Market watch and one chart open without  indicators or EA's and CPU was on 100%

It looks that you can start more than 32 terminals per PC, but that doesn't look very usable.

512MB RAM: 1 MT4 instances. Good for a small number of EAs. 
1GB RAM: 1-3 MT4 instances.
2GB RAM: 4-10 MT4 instances. 
4GB RAM: 11+ MT4 instances. Ideal for advanced computing and heavy testing.

My VPS:
- Guaranteed RAM: 1,5GB
- CPU Intel® Xeon®: 2x2.4Ghz
- Windows Server 2012 R2

Currently, I have 6 active instances, 11 EAs.
Slowdown around the weekend.
Better not perform other tasks, such browsers, etc.

How do I test the influence if I use multiple strategies at the same account?

So 1 account, 3 chats: Grid trader, scalper en another EA, or doesn't I have to test this because the EA's are winners separate, so they don't affect the other?
