You can set it to only restart off peak hours. I have mine set to only restart during the early hours of the morning when the market is practically at a standstill. When I get up in the morning I just log in and start metatrader again, an hour later the market starts getting active again (UK open).

The 'Just restart after update, tough luck!...' was fixed in an update.

Push start -> type 'settings' -> Update and Security -> under update settings go into Change active hours.

For every loss there should be at least an equal and opposite profit.

We always face problems from Windows. Last night, I came home to a PC waiting for me to login, because Windows 10 decided it was time to update. No warning. No request. Just a reboot.
I haven't progressed to the point of trading on a VPS, so I'm running buy and sell triggers in software on my PC. I haven't looked at every pair & time frame that I trade, so I can't say I missed an entry or the related target, but I can say after 30+ years of using Microsoft products, their arrogance is as bad or worse than it ever was.

'We want you to run business critical apps on your PC, but we will reboot your PC during a presentation, or a client VOIP conference call, at our convenience and without warning'

Feels like I'm flying United.


Well on my servers I do always FORBID automatic updates, it is quite easy to do :)

So basically one of the following couple days, we will wake up and all our trading passwords will be gone… if it wasn’t your warning – someone may have to reset all his passwords (so stupid from Microsoft…). Is there an official warning from Microsoft or you just found it by yourself? Thank you!

Accept the loss as experience

Has anyone here had problems with the update so far?

I agree, it's best just to disable windows updates. I also have a script in my startup folder that automatically restarts MetaTrader in the event of an unplanned restart. VPS are fairly inexpensive and a good investment imo. Even free through AWS.

Wouldn't disabling windows updates altogether cause problems with other software though? Some of it requires the latest version of Windows to run well or at all.

If security isn't an issue for you (meaning that you trust those that can physically walk up to your pc) then you can use this method that I use. You set it to automatically login to a specific account. Then you would put shortcuts to terminal.exe for your metatrader instances that need to run all the time in the startup folder. Until windows 8 came along you could simply navigate to the startup folder from the start menu. Right click the startup folder and then click open. Starting with windows 8 things got a little trick but still not impossible. You would right click the start button and click run or search run from the start menu. Then you type 'shell:startup' without quotes. Your startup folder should show up and in there you would copy the same shortcuts to your terminal.exe files.

I do provide programming services so if you need help with this you can consult with me but this should be enough information for most people to do it on your own.

Ask me about professional custom eas

By disabling, I mean Automatic Updates. The updates are still downloaded and you are notified when they are available. The actual install is done manually at your discretion. (During the weekend when markets are closed). I've never had an issue. If software requires a patch to run correctly, it means it hasn't been running correctly before the patch was available. If you never updated your system, newer programs might not run properly or notify you updates are required for installation.

Ah, that makes a lot more sense. I thought you meant disabling them altogether, which doesn't seem like a very good idea to me.
