Hi, I've study MT5 during those days, and I find a question that refuse me???

I installed soft in "D:\Program Files\MetaTrader 5" and everything goes well, specially I also find the subfolder named MQL5 under this path.

but today when I was copy the indicator - AdoSuite into the D:\Program Files\MetaTrader 5\MQL5\Indicators, it's not work anymore!

and I also find that the destination folders of MetaEditor aren't under the "......\MQL5\" but a temporary folder like

"C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\E6E3D0917DD641581E4779524EB3B1AA\MQL5"(Win 7 OS)

so how to change the folder and specify the metaEditor folder???

thank you very much!
