Running Two MT4 Platforms at the Same Time
Posted on: 21 July 2014 , by: Pepperstone Support , category: MetaTrader 4
By default you are unable to run more than one Metatrader platform at a time. Through the installation process, there is a way of running two MT4 platforms at the same time. To run two instances of the Metatrader platform on your PC, you will need to install a second instance of the platform but in different directories on your PC / VPS.
First download the installer and run the file. You will then be prompted by the window below. To select where the program is installed, please agree to the license agreement then click the 'Settings' to bring up the installation directory settings.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\MetaTrader – Pepperstone\
Then, complete the process again but install a second copy into a folder with a different name, such as: C:\Program Files\MetaTrader – Pepperstone2\
The two folders should be able to be viewed in their respective folders in the program files folder where they were installed.
You will then be able to have both platforms running at the same time. You may wish to label the programs as Metatrader
