setting up mt4

I'm new to myfxbook, and experiencing difficulties adding a mt4 account to myfxbook
I've previously used mt4live.com and that's been straightforward to setup

Both setup run in tandem until i reach the FTP path: fileld. mt4live have me enter a forward slash (/) and myfxbook leave that field empty.

Next i come unstuck at FTP login:

with mt4 live i simply enter my registered mt4live.com username. However, myfxbook say: 'After adding a new MetaTrader 4 account, you'll see an ftp user number. This number will be your ftp login in your MetaTrader 4 platform.'

I called up my broker which is Alpari but they weren't able to help me and i do not see where i should see this number to enter into the 'FTP login:' field

I'd be obliged if someone can clarify where i've gone wrong and help me set this up, as I think that once i get over this hurdle i will prefer this service over mt4live.com

thank you

Hi livingdaylight,

Because our system allows you to set up multiple trading accounts under one username, the setup is a bit different.

Go to your settings area, after adding an account you'll see there under 'Ftp User' the number you're looking for.

It is all explained here: https://www.myfxbook.com/help#help_1

If you still can't find it, please send us a private message.

Cuda, as the error suggests, the login details are incorrect.

Make sure you use the settings as described here: https://www.myfxbook.com/help#help_1

You can confirm you're using the correct password by logging out and logging back in to Myfxbook.

If you're still unable to resolve it, please contact us privately.

Thank you.

I am using windows 8 and I'm having trouble installing myfxbook on MT4. I have downloaded myfxbook EA installer v1.3 and run it as administrator. A dialogue box has popped up which says please select the installations which you wish to be installed with the Myfxbook EA. When I click 'add' a dialogue box pops up that says 'browse for folder' but when I open the folder which has my MT4 platform my MT4 isn't there! when I change the location still none of them have my MT4 platform!! Is there something that I'm not doing?

I am new to fxbook MT4 and have no idea what it is all about. So, I have been searching about it a a lot but can't find any links.
Although I have made an account on fxbook.com and I downloaded MT4(EA) but am not able to install it. Everytime I try to install it, it asks for a location and when i choose it, the address won't appear?😕 I open it under Admin still the problem persists.
Please help!
