Advanced Currency Meter in MT4 / MT5 Indicators_clip
Hi all.
Just a quick question for the very knowledgeable guys on here.
Why is it, if I load this indi on (most of)my desktop installed platforms, it loads without problems.
If I try to load it on a VPS installed platform, it says:
cannot load 'C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\1DAFD9A7C67DC84FE37EAA1FC1E5CF75\MQL4\indicators\Advanced Currency Meter.ex4'

Any help please? 
PS. This is actually quite a nice indi. 
I wrote an EA which uses the values for the currencies to determine strength. Obviously the EA works on my desktop, but not on the VPS
If anyone is interested in the EA, please let me know.

If you are getting that message then it probably means you haven't installed the indicator correctly on the MT4 on the VPS. So your EA is trying to import from an indicator that doesn't exist at that location. Whenever I see other's having this message, that's what it is. Are you following the same procedure on both computers?

Yes.
Copy the indicator to the x:\MQL4/Indicator folder
It shows in the folder, and even in the Navigator / Indicators 
When I drop it on the chart on my PC, it immediately shows the window with inputs etc.
When I drop it on the VPS chart, it doesn't show up, and the error message appears in the experts tab.
Same broker platform.
What I don't inderstand too is, this is the path in the error file:
C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\C603EF303D369FE1BE6C7A5BA05799FE\MQL4\indicators\Advanced Currency Meter.ex4
I have re-installed the Platform, to only be c:\program files\brokername, and copied the indi to this installation's  Indicator folder, again, the indi shows up in the navigator AND the indicator drop down, but it gives the error above

Just thought I will attach 2 images.
On the error image you can see the error in the experts tab.
Other image is from my desktop, same broker, same account nr, same everything.

PS. I just need to tweak a few things on the EA, then I will post it.

I understand already. The only cause of this that I have ever seen is from an indicator not being installed properly. I have seen this many times, and every time that I can remember, this was the reason. Please double check that you have the indicator installed in the proper location, you refresh the indicator list, and see that it shows up in the list too.

Thanks for the help again. 
I will see if I re-install the platforms, maybe that also has something to do with it.

I'm sure it's just a simple matter of not installing the indicator correctly. I don't think re-installing the MT4 platform is needed. Come back and let us know if you figured it out later.

Will do.
There is nothing to install. It's a single EX4 file that is copied to the relevant directory, no DLL's or anything. THAT is what boggles my mind.

I had the same problem with a VPS a while back. If I remember right the way I fixed it was going into the windows settings and messing with the administrator permissions. I hope this helps.

Why  not  just  download  another  mt4.  Then  try to  add  the  file  and  see  the  results  if  after  all  effort  the file  doesn't  respond  that obvious  there  is  glitch  in  the file  not  about  installing  it.

Yes you need to reinstall or at least update your Metatrader software

Yes, I know. It's a very simple procedure, but still an installation in my opinion. You would be surprised how many people do this wrong. For example, you could install this to a different folder and still be able to use the indicator manually, but the EA is looking in a specific folder only and if it cannot find it then you will see this message.

Advanced Currency Meter in MT4 / MT5 Indicators_xx
Hi all.
Just a quick question for the very knowledgeable guys on here.
Why is it, if I load this indi on (most of)my desktop installed platforms, it loads without problems.
If I try to load it on a VPS installed platform, it says:
cannot load 'C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\MetaQuotes\Terminal\1DAFD9A7C67DC84FE37EAA1FC1E5CF75\MQL4\indicators\Advanced Currency Meter.ex4'

Any help please?
PS. This is actually quite a nice indi.
I wrote an EA which uses the values for the currencies to determine strength. Obviously the EA works on my desktop, but not on the VPS
If anyone is interested in the EA, please let me know.
I used to use this CSM indicator and it was not suitable for my technique, because I was often late to enter the market, the price had moved far away CSM had just issued a signal entry so I was floating minus a lot.

It is not an EA, it is an Indicator
