Re: Forex Strategy Builder Professional Beta 1

hello Pop and thanks for the new release
But the installer cannot find the MT4 terminals like the old installer

Could you modify it to recognize the Mt4 like the old one

Thanks in advance

Re: Forex Strategy Builder Professional Beta 1

Where is your terminal installed (what OS)?

Re: Forex Strategy Builder Professional Beta 1

Its Win 7 and all my MT4s installed in the regular path which is C:\Program Files (x86)

Re: Forex Strategy Builder Professional Beta 1

Where the experts are installed?

The new location must be:

C:\Users\USERNANE\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\BB190E062770E27C3E79391AB0D1A117\MQL4\Experts

Re: Forex Strategy Builder Professional Beta 1

Expert Installer is updated. It searches experts also in "Program Files (x86) folder.

It can be downloaded together with the Expert and  Library v6.0 from the Download page.

Re: Forex Strategy Builder Professional Beta 1

1- i have no expert installed
the beta1 installer skip that step  and gives me the msg '' no mt4 platforms ''

2- when access to the appdata in my computer
C:\Users\Karma\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal  i find only three folders each one with a log file in it  , So i donot have this part '' \MQL4\Experts ''

You might have to adjust User Account Controls  or  Use administrator account.....

Windows is a bit fussy about the programs directory, I keep my programs out of there becaiuse of the ways and updating are treated.

My 'secret' goal is to push EA Studio until I can net 3000 pips per day....

Re: Forex Strategy Builder Professional Beta 1

Just copy the expert and dll manually in the appropriate folders and delete the mqlcache.dat file.
That's all.

Re: Forex Strategy Builder Professional Beta 1

Found bugs in Start page.
- Last strategies list do not show the latest strategy. However button is active and it can be open. also program crashes when there is no strategies in the list.
- Start page doesn't show icons of the strategies available in "Strategies" folder.

I'll update FSB Pro after fixing these problems.

Hello, togr, I believe I can help you with those old indicators! Here is what I can offer: http://forexsb.com/forum/post/24512/#p24512

On the other hand I have no idea how to help you with lot sizes and adding positions. I believe FSB Pro will become much more polished in the future, since these days it's in early Beta, not even a Release Candidate.

Re: Forex Strategy Builder Professional Beta 1

I am using specially prepared expert to trade martingale as it did not work.

FST and FSB Pro are using the same Expert and Library.
Both products works in the exactly same way.

If you made modifications of your expert, they should work in the same way in FSB Pro.

Unfortunately MetaQuotes made changes in MT4 and many old experts stopped working.
I and Serfel updated the expert for FST and FSB Pro FOR FREE.

You don't have to buy anything you don't want. An you don't have to be angry for something that is not under our control.

Be sure we are working on 100% to fix all issues and to provide better user experience.
By saying we, I mean me and some other collaborators.
With selling FSB Pro, I hope I can hire developers to bring the project on another level.

I suggest you to calm down and to rest for several days. In that time you can try using some other tools for developing and testing strategies - for example MetaTrader. If you fill much better coding in MQL, greet. You don't need FSB.

If you are still our user - it's even greater.
We'll try to make your forex journey better and smoother. (in our free time of coerce. Because our main efforts are towards making FSB Pro even better)

i think there is a problem with automatic updates  '' its checked in '' but software cannot recognize the updates !!!

Re: Forex Strategy Builder Professional Beta 1

It checks once per day.
You can force the check by deleting: C:\Program Files\Forex Strategy Builder Pro\Versions\FSB_Pro_Updater.xml file and restart FSB Pro.
It will be updated and you'll see a record in the log panel.

Re: Forex Strategy Builder Professional Beta 1

Hey Popov,

thanks for the hst import feature FSB PRO1.2 . Trying this out today but I can't seem to get it working. I downloaded the hst files from Oanda and attached one here for your testing.

It read somewhere that these are the 'new' format that's why in the FSB free it stopped working.

Could you shed some light on this?

Thanks.

Re: Forex Strategy Builder Professional Beta 1

MT4 import is fixed in FSB and is placed in FSB Pro. I tested it with two MT4 brokers.
Is this file form Oanda MT4? What build?

Re: Forex Strategy Builder Professional Beta 1

from oanda's mt4

version 4 build 625.



I'll try again with fxpro later.
