Hello.Metaqoutes had little build 574, which introduced confusion in setting indicators and advisors, they released a build of 604, in which a huge number of old software simply does not work.Why was it necessary to do so - a simple question.Basically, of course, to ruin the life of traders.
But should worry us more - that make us ordinary users in this situation?Of course, staying in an old build of 509, where it works, as long as possible.In this article we will look at a way to disable the automatic update of the terminal, as well as roll back to the old version, if you have already upgraded.
For what purpose was released 604+ build?
MetaQuotes - the company that developed the MetaTrader 4 - in worked hard to develop the next generation of its trading platform over the past 2-3 years (MetaTrader 5), trying to keep pace with the more modern and complex trading terminals available in somebrokers.However MT5 significantly different from the MT4, and few traders have opted for this new platfo
Currently, the company MetaQuotes tries to make every effort spent on the development of the MT5 platform for the release of new version builds on the MT4, which includes many of the features MT5.The problem is that most traders are not asked and were not prepared for such a major upgrade.As a result, we are dealing with a mass debate and complaints that you are likely to come across in many forums over the past couple of weeks.
There are hidden financial motives.Namely - to destroy the support of the software, in order to attract traders in buying scams via the built in MT4 market.A commission from each purchase goes clear to whom.
Why stay on the build of 509?
Firstly, the new 604 + th build is still very raw: a lot of problems not only with the software, but also with the banal execution of orders.Bugs, bugs and more time bugs.Second to wait until you see the desired indicators and trading experts, compatible with 604+ builds can be a very long time ....
And third: I think you have enough problems in life and trading, why do you spare the hemorrhoids with a semi-workers forex terminal?
How to disable auto update Metatrader 4?
Enable "User Account Control»
If you have Windows Vista operating system or above (Windows 7, Windows 8), you should use the option "Manage Account" (if youI do not know how to enable this option, you can find it in the Google search engine).The operating system will automatically block the upgrade to the 604-th to build as long as you do not allow it.As an example, in Windows 7, when MT4 trying to upgrade to 604-th build or above, you should see the following pop-up window:
Unfortunately, some traders said that despite the fact that theyCycled option "User account Control", their platform is still automatically updated to 604-second build.That is why we propose to use another workaround, which I say below.
MetaTrader 4 provides functionality for the upcoming updates in the folder:
C: \ ProgramData \ MetaQuotes \ WebInstall \
you at once and you can not find this folder, becauseit is hidden.In this case, in order to find you can try to use the entire drive C. After the search function, you will find «Webinstall» folder, you must delete all of its contents.This will prevent the update MT4.However, this only works once, as during his work MT4 platform will be again to download the update file and create a folder «Webinstall».This means that you need to periodically delete the folder, especially immediately after the close of all of your MT4 platform before the weekend.
How to roll back the platform to the 509 th builds
If you are still using for at least one platform on the 509th build, then you need to be backed up in an archive file.This backup can be used to create any number of MT4 Build 509 for all of you interested in brokers.
Unpack the backup in the desired directory (preferably outside the «C: \ Program Files \»), and then copy all you need advisors, custom indicators, as well as files with the extension .srv in the «config» directory thatIt contains the IP addresses of the servers you are interested brokers.
Upon completion, double-click the file «terminal.exe».The first time you do this, the system will prompt you for «Login», «Password», and «Server» (do not forget to tick the box «Save account information»).After that, you will again work for MT4 Build 509.
If you already befallen the update, you can download the archive with the MT4 build 509 on the links below.
If the download link for your build 509 DC is not listed, do not worry.From any MT 509 MT 509 can do for your BFP!
