Step by step process if you need to transfer your EAs from older build to build 600.
It should have been done automatically when MT4 is auto-updated. If it does not work or if you have clean build 600 installation and need to get your EAs working do this.

1. run MT4, check the build you have - Help|About. If you have build 600 continue.
2. go to File|Open Data Folder - new explorer window opens. URL will look like this
C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\ABBC7AE53346DC8D3872BACCD5AE2F39.
Keep that window opened.
3. Open the location where are your EAs stored - usually c:\Program Files (x86)\MetaTrader 4\Experts\
Copy the whole structure of folder 'experts'to location in step#2

Example for particular EA
go to c:\Program Files (x86)\MetaTrader 4\Experts\
copy Myfxbook.ex4 file
open location from step #2
paste to folder Experts

go to c:\Program Files (x86)\MetaTrader 4\Experts\libraries\
copy MyfxbookEA.dll
open location from step #2
paste to folder Libraries

I have a problem. Myfxbook EA grey colored in advisors list and not working. Both files ( dll and ex4 ) in the correct directories. I attached EA on my chart - but nothing happened. On advisors tab I see only Myfxbook EURUSD M5: Can't open file

I installed new version already. Could you share your files, dll and ex4? I will try to install them manually

It is myfxbook setup:) But it installs new version in wrong directory
In step #3 (old structure) instead of step #2

The EA files were added to the help section, if for some reason the installer doesn't work please install manually.
