Now open Metatrader 4 and run the script. As you can see you must first provide the name without extension of your mq4 file and select if it is an indicator 0EA 2 or script 3 file. Anyone got this to work? I've tried 3 different MT4 brokers and updated the files but it just keeps saying: Nice try,it can do the convert from the ex4 files to mq5,but when u want use the files at the mt5,they can not compiled to ex5 files successfully,because of a lot errors that they are creating by the difference of the syntax from the mt4,so you can not use the indicators finally.
But this can be very useful for the programmers that they can fix the errors of the indicators and make them work,without need to rewrite an indicator from the begining. Anyone try this last mq4 to mq5 converter?
