Same problems for me also, metaquotes don't care one bit. They ignore all my emails.
Keep that market maker $$$ rolling in though ;) That's the way and their only customers!
Just remember that. I have not had history center or backtester working as it should
for months now and no longer able to download M1 data from metaquotes.
There was/is an EA that collects tick data  I think it then may allow backtesting in a more accurate and working way but not really sure. 'Break Through The Strategy Tester Limit On Testing Hedge EA' I have the EA somewhere here and should still be on codebase...I think...

I have researched the problem and it seems that the data from the server is the problem so I have downloaded the history again and I get the same problems. The statements below are from the Strategy Tester's journal. Also when I look at the other tabs like Optimization Results and Optimization Graph I do not see anything. 2007.12.28 15:01:58 There were 1 passes done during optimization, 1 results have
been discarded as insignificant What are possible solutions to this problem?

It happened also to me. For me it looks like it is better not to download history from the download center at all.
