Hi Sebfiesta,

It's likely that you just need to explicitly set your config filename in the EA parameters. Please check out this FAQ article for more:

Hi Sebfiesta,

All EAs that are run in Metatrader can only write to a designated folder that Metatrader decides.

When running an EA on a chart, this folder will be:
(In Metatrader) File->Open Data Folder then browse to MQL4/Files.

If running in the MT4 Strategy Tester, the folder will be:
(In Metatrader) File->Open Data Folder then browse to tester/files.

Hope this helps.
