Belkaglazer update

How to update the EA

1. Close MT4 and create a backup copy of the MT4 ‘profiles’ folder (File-> Open Data Folder->profiles). This folder contains all settings and charts with set-files loaded.

2. Update the EA to the latest version:https://www.mql5.com/en/articles/498#update

3. If after updating the EA settings were reset to the default values (for example, Magic=50220), close MT4 and restore the ‘profiles’ folder from the backup.


***After the first installation of the EA, I recommend copying the .ex file from the MQL4\Experts\Market folder to the MQL4\Experts folder and attaching the EA to a chart from this folder. So, during next updates, there will be updated the .ex file that is not used for trading, and in case of an incorrect update, your working file of the EA will not be affected. Also, you will have a backup copy of the .ex file. To update the working file, you need to close the MT4 terminal and manually copy the .ex from the MQL4\Experts\Market to MQL4\Experts folder.
