There is no restriction on MT4.

However, your broker (which you will need in order to get a datafeed) may place a restriction on your demo duration.

MT4 is just software; metaquotes don't provide any price data.

You need to open an account with a broker (or download historical data if you only want to backtest).

MT4 = car

Datafeed = fuel

Honda don't sell fuel.

Press CTRL+N to open the Navigator window (if it isn't already open).

What does it say under Accounts?
