ok I have the fix!

You need to go into MT4\Tools\Options\Expert Advisors and check the Allow DLL imports.

It's not enough just setting it to allow DLL imports on the MyFxBook EA itself when you attach that to the chart as there is a secondary EA now also being used as some kind of helper.

This may change, but it will get things working for you now :-)

All the best,
Gary.

in advisors tab in MT4 i see only Myfxbook EURUSD M5 ( where attached EA ) : Can't open file


Make sure you allow DLL imports (options->Expert Advisors->'allow DLL imports').

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

Ethan, to be fair you did allude to the overall MT4 DLL enablement in the above.

All good now. You'll need to figure out why the Installer is going wrong though. I suspect it will work on a fresh Build 600 but runs into issues when you still have the old directory structure left behind from Build 509 so places the OLD MyFxBook files into the OLD directory structure.

Well done for getting this working though for Build 600 - i'm still awaiting a response from a PAID EA supplier!

Thanks,
Gary.

Here is a solution to get myfxbook to work with Build 600 of MT4:

1) Download the attached files and unzip them
2) To make sure you are in the correct folder when you do step 3) below, open MT4 and then click on File and then click on Open Data Folder.
3) Add Myfxbook.ex4 into MQL4\Experts folder, and both Mql5HttpLib.ex4 and zlib_wrapper.dll into MQL4\Libraries folder.

I just woke up to check my Myfxbook, and I found something strange happened. Some accounts are stopped reporting to myfxbook about 3 hours ago.
I open my VPS and I saw that all build 600 terminals, that I new installed yesterday, don't work anymore. My accounts profiles, EA, indicators all are gone.

Then I open File > Open Data Folder, it redirects to the old build MT4 folder structure, it's back to old C:\XXXXXX MetaTrader4\experts\ root directory, there's no more \AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\xxxxxxxxxxxx\MQL4\ .

I just remember that I set my VPS to restart daily (it restarted about 3 hours ago), and I'm sure this is the cause.

Any one have the same experience?
Has MetaQuote released a newer update?

I have just tried to restart my VPS again, and I checked all build 600 terminals back to new \AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\xxxxxxxxxxxx\MQL4\

I don't know what's really happened..

Thank you SolidPips, everything back to normal.

Hi Guys,

A new version was released last week (which works on build 600) - please download it here:

Ea myfxbook instead .Ex4 should be .Mq4, then you can hide the username and password in the code and are not visible, are not recorded in the log strategy.
