I don't know if this is a MQL4 question or a Windows question. This has happened a couple of times now with a demo account. I don't want to lose a live account this way:
• I make a mistake in a Custom indicator, infinite loop for example, the terminal freezes and I have to close it through the Windows Task Manager.
• Then the terminal will no longer launch.
Q: How do I correct this condition?
Thanks in advance for any help!
Do you mean that the platform opens and immediately freezes?
If so, and you know which indicator you are using, open the indicator mq4 file in the compiler and remove the code that is causing the problem, recompile.
I have done this. I have removed the indicator altogether. Yet the terminal still will not launch. It may flash the chart for a second, then closes.
I opened the account in another terminal. The account info came up correctly. But now it will not write to a common file, says it doesn't exist now. I do not understand the filing system since the big mt4 update. I used to be able to find each terminal and clone it or search through it's folder easily. Now I don't know what the terminal is anymore. The apparent random string names for the folders containing it's support files. The roaming stuff.
OK. For starters, why doesn't this "terminal" see the common file anymore?
I'm primarily a Mac person - I don't get the MQL4/Windows roaming filing setup at all. Perhaps you could refer me to sources to help learn about it. The main question is how to remove the error status.
I really appreciate your help.
