I am opening this topic to centralize all information about migrating to Windows 10. No much for now, but important points to be aware anyway.
P.S : Of course, only information related to MT4/MT5 will be reported here.
it's not only the purchased indicators that don't work. Also most of free indicators that normaly used before don't . only a few do.
Also, this happened after updating mt4. it opens a folder in different location places all files in in this track
If i move the mql4 folder to C:\Program Files\MetaTrader 4
the platform copies the files to C:\Users\...\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes and causes the indicators and experts not to work.
Please, this needs to be fixed while downloading and installing the mt4.
I'm not sure what update mql5 did to the platform. But it's causing indicators and experts not to work
- my folder in MT4 (MT4 - FIle - Open Data Folder) is the following (on my Asus Tablet with Windows 8.1): C:\Users\Asus_vivo_tab\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\...\MQL4\...- folder in MT5 (in MT5 menu: MT5 - FIle - Open Data Folder): C:\Users\Asus_vivo_tab\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\...\MQL5\..The folders were not changed for MT4 on my Windows XP computer, but it was changed for the other PCs by Miscrosoft (it is not related to MQ). And it was from the long time ago (I am not sure which builds you were updating to the latest ones ... seems - you were updating the old builds to the very news builds ...).
I am not professional with Windows 10 (I do not like Windows 10 sorry) but you can try to re-install Metatrader once again (in case of free indicators/EAs only!), and place indicators/EAs to the correct folder after that: C:\Users\A...\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\...\MQL5(4)\..And read the following thread in case you are already on Windows 10: Windows 10 upgrade : what you should know !
Hi Marco vd Heijden
I got this message 'license' even for free products!
Although, after updating to Windows 10 none of the products asked to update the license or asked to reactivate the software. Only some ask to download a free update for the product.
Metatrader4 delted the passwords caused me to reactivate the platform to the latest bulid and placed the files in different folder and stopped the tools from working.
