Task: There are 2 accounts opened at the same broker. One account you want to use for trading with advisors, and another to trade manually without avoiding losing focus on the EA’s positions. What’s to be done? But when carrying out the installation of the second terminal from the same DC, the installer offers just check the first installation. I’ll tell you about a very simple way.
1. We set the first terminal as usual.
2. And now we start the installation of the second MT4.
Run the .exe installer and press the Settings button. After that we are asked to choose the installation directory.
3. In the line for choosing the directory, we change a name of the folder, in which the terminal will be installed, to any other, but of course, you should be able to recall the folder ☺.
For example, by default, the installation folder is named Alpari MT4, and we will change it for Alpari MT4-2, to clearly separate the second terminal.
It was like this:
We are doing like this:
We’ll also be offered to select a group in the Programs menu. We specify the same as we have specified in the name of the installation directory (in our example, Alpari MT4-2).
Click Next and complete the installation.
5. Now you can go to Start -> Programs, find both terminals and use them simultaneously.
Sincerely yours, Pavel Vlasov
