I don't see the EAs listed on my navigator!

Trades are not being copied!
Make sure you have loaded SourceEA on the master platform and ReceiverEA loaded on the slave platform. Also make sure you have DLL Calls enabled and Autotrading permissions for both Metatrader platforms.
How many slave accounts can I have?
There is not a predefined maximum number of slave accounts you can copy to. This number is restricted only by hardware of the computer in which the program runs. Kindly note that you'll need to have just one account per single MT4 platform.
Do I need the master password of the master account?
No, you don't. You can copy trades if you have the investor password,
I get a 5020 error and trades are not being copied!
It means that the ReceiverEA could not copy the trade from the master account. This can happen if A) The symbol name is completely different from the master to the slave account: for example, GER30 and DAX30. Please override symbol names on the application settings. B) Trading is disabled on the account, which can mean you are trying to trade on a read-only account or that the broker is off-quotes. C) The symbol you are trying to copy needs a suffix. For example, if the master symbol is EURUSD and the slave symbol is EURUSDfx, you need to type the suffix ("fx") on the Local Trade Copier settings.
What Windows versions are supported?
It supports Windows 98 and higher. Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8.
My metatrader terminal crashes when I run the EA!
Probably you have more than one Local Trade Copier loaded per terminal. Please remove the EA from all charts, and load it just once per terminal. Loading it once will make sure all trades are copied.
Can I copy trades from one master account to several accounts?
Yes, you can! Just make sure to configure several receives in the Local Trade Copier window. Then load the ReceiverEA into all those platforms.
Can I copy trades from several sources to a single slave account?
Yes, you can! Make sure to configure several sources for the same slave account. This way you can mix the trading of two master account into a single slave account.
Do I need to load the EA into several charts?
No, you don't! In fact, if you do, the Metatrader platform will crash. Please load the EA just once on each platform. This will ensure trades from all symbols are being copied.
The copying activity stops after 5, 10 o 15 minutes! What is going on?
Very likely your computer is going into sleep mode after 15 minutes of inactivity. Go to windows control panel and disable all sleeping and power saving options to avoid this from happening again.
