How to load an EA

Downloading an EA

Before you load your EA onto the MetaTrader 4 platform, you will need to download the EA to your PC or VPS (Virtual Private Server). If you plan on running your EA on a Virtual Private Server (VPS) for added security, make sure to complete all of the steps below while LOGGED INTO your VPS.

Whether you are downloading your EA from an Email account or website, it's a good idea to have a separate folder on your desktop for easy access to your EA.

So in your windows explorer on your PC or VPS create a separate folder for your experts.

Now you will need to save the EA to the folder. To do so you can Double-click the EA download, or open the attachment (if in an Email) and the window below will pop up.
