MT4 TRO indicators problem

Postby darrell1954 » Thu Jul 10, 2014 8:37 am

I am running Windows7 and have MT4 version 4 build 670. I have imported TRO's indicators according to TRO's instructions and I can view them within the relevant folders. However, when I run MT4 none of the indicators are shown in the Navigator window. My MT4 provider can't help me. I have run out of ideas. I am the administrator for my pc and I have tried reinstalling.
Any ideas will be gratefully received.

Darrell,UK.

I am following the instructions sent out with he most recent donational indicators you emailed yesterday. The instructions are identical to those above. The indicators are visible within the folder C:\Program Files\your metatrader folder name\MQL4\indicators but are not visible within Navigator.

I found this bit of syntax that may help those wanting to compile "old" indicators to MT4 600 and above (note that Meta quotes will no longer support any version lower than 6 as of August 2014 (no neither will your broker)

change all the vars like this

"some.var" to "some_var"

This will then allow the code to compile... courtesy of a post O read on Insanity Industries

At least on mine I need to find the secret mt4 folder File -> Open Data Folder
When the folder opens go into MQL4 to find the Experts folder.

Yes, on Windows 8 you have to do that.
