Morning all,

I've just started having a strange issue with some EA testing I'm doing.

Basically I'm developing a GA perl script to create ex5 files, compile them, create an ini file to run them, and then run them from the command line

 So the terminal command line is something like this

C:\Program Files\MetaTrader 5>terminal64.exe /config:C:\Users\Keith\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\D0E8209F77C8CF37AD8BF550E51FF075\MQL5\Experts\Evolution\gene00000ca1.ini 

 The ini file is this

 [Common]

Login=1298063

ProxyEnable=0

ProxyType=0

ProxyAddress=192.168.0.1:3128

ProxyLogin=10

ShutdownTerminal=1

If I run the ex5 file manually from the strategy tester, it runs correctly (connects to tester as expected)

But if I run it from the ini file via the command line it cannot connect to the tester agent.

Strange thing is, this is the 6th generation that I'm running so the previous 5 generation (some 5000 tests all worked OK), seems to have stopped working this morning.

So should I just re-install MetaTrader 5 as a first check, or has anyone else seen this before?

 This is the journal from the ini started run 

 

 This is the journal from the manually started run (same ea, same dates, same parameters)

 

 

Any ideas or suggestions gratefully received.

 

Thanks, Keith

Just for completeness, here is the tester agent log file

 

PS Yes, I have rebooted the PC :-)

Could you:

  1. try to run your script again (to reproduce error)
  2. create a ticket using ServiceDesk section in your profile
  3. attach log files of terminal, experts, tester and tester agent which terminal is unable to authorize
We will investigate your problem.
