Launching MT4 via ShellExecute

Launching MT4 via ShellExecute

Postby nesit » Tue Dec 19, 2017 7:02 pm


I have an MT4 EA which launches another instance of MT4 using Shellexecute to perform the backtest.

Is there a way to get it to laugh with the Tickstory routines so it can get 99% ?

Any future plans ?

I'd appreciate your thoughts - it may well be a dealbreaker for me.

Much Appreciated

Hi Neil,

Sounds like a rather intricate EA ;) The only thing that may work is if the shell execute is essentially the same MT4 Installation that is configured in the Tickstory settings. Tickstory looks for an existing running instance of the terminal before it attempts its own "execute".

There are additional enhancements to the launcher being planned, but this wont immediately help you.

Hope this helps.
