  • #331 written by Jon April 16, 2016 (7 months ago)

    Is MQ working on any betas at the moment for mt4? It seems like it has been at b950 for quite some time. That’s a good thing IMO, but I wanted to make sure TDS would be able to launch the latest betas as well.

    • #332 written by birt April 16, 2016 (7 months ago)

      They’re probably working on it but to the best of my knowledge they haven’t released any public betas.

      To answer your question, I watch their typical beta release channels and make TDS work with the betas generally less than 24 hours from each release.

      • #333 written by Jon April 16, 2016 (7 months ago)

        which beta channels do you watch?

        • #334 written by birt April 16, 2016 (7 months ago)

          Metaquotes has a couple of servers that they release beta versions to.

    hi i want to try it , send me code pls tks

  • #337 written by Dan July 3, 2016 (5 months ago)

    Tried to run the dukascopy download php today and am getting “error code was 301”. Never had a problem with this script before, is data still available from dukascopy?

    • #338 written by birt July 3, 2016 (5 months ago)

      It’s a recent change in the Dukascopy URL. Replace “www.dukascopy.com” with “datafeed.dukascopy.com” in the script and you should be fine.

      • #339 written by Dan July 6, 2016 (5 months ago)

        Thanks, working now.

  • #340 written by SuperFan September 4, 2016 (3 months ago)

    MT4 build 1010 18 Aug 2016, not support.

    • #341 written by birt September 4, 2016 (3 months ago)

      Build 1010 is supported. Make sure you are running the latest Tick Data Suite version.

  • #342 written by zhong September 6, 2016 (3 months ago)

    Birt’s CSV2FXT script v0.50 binaries MT4 build 1010 18 Aug 2016, not support.

    • #343 written by birt September 6, 2016 (3 months ago)

      Care to elaborate? Do you get any errors or what is the problem you are encountering?

  • #344 written by Gonzalo September 9, 2016 (3 months ago)

    I’d like to add, the fact, that Tickstory made and update to support the versión 1010, maybe something change.

    • #345 written by birt September 9, 2016 (3 months ago)

      I’m not sure what exactly you are talking about.

      CSV2FXT works fine with MT4 build 1010, so does the Tick Data Suite. If you’re having any problems, please send a support email.

  • #346 written by vetallnemo September 19, 2016 (2 months ago)

    Good day ! Support does not answer me , I will write here. Installed version of Suite Tick Data v2.0.4 beta has received a trial key that would try and make a purchase decision . But after the installation and start the program exits the error message: “License error: the authentication information stored in your registry is incomplete. An authentication refresh was queued, please try to restart this application in a few seconds.

    • #347 written by birt September 19, 2016 (2 months ago)

      There was no message received from you on the support email address. Did you send an email directly or did you use the support form?

      Please open a support ticket using the Tick Data Suite support assistant; leave the checkboxes for all the log files enabled and I will look into the problem.

      • #348 written by vetallnemo September 20, 2016 (2 months ago)

        I sent through the form . You can please more in detail what steps I need to do ?

        • #349 written by birt September 20, 2016 (2 months ago)

          Depending on your Windows version, something along the lines of clicking Start -> All Programs -> Tick Data Suite and running the Tick Data Suite support assistant.

          In the support tab type “license error” for both the summary and the description, leave all checkboxes enabled and click the send button.

          I will also send you an email with more details.

  • #350 written by back2profit September 27, 2016 (2 months ago)

    MT4 1010 when using csv2fxt got Error code: UNABLE TO UNDERSTAND DATE FORMAT

    downloaded from SQ TickDownloader and exported there to csv

    is there a solution for this problem?

    Thanks

    • #351 written by birt September 27, 2016 (2 months ago)

      I’m not sure about the export options from SQ Tick Downloader but I believe you have to configure a different export format for the CSV.

      The dates in your CSV should look like:
      2003-04-06 07:08:09.012

      In any case, if you can’t figure it out please open a support ticket at https://eareview.net/tick-data-suite/support and paste the lines that get printed to your experts log when you try to run CSV2FXT.

    Hi,
    for Tick Data Suite v2.1.1 and V2.1 as well i am getting alert “There is a problem with this Windows installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. ….”

    I have a Win 7 64bit.

  • #354 written by Ionut November 16, 2016 (3 weeks ago)

    Hello. What program do I need in order to prevent overwrite fxt and hst data? Thank you.

    • #355 written by birt November 16, 2016 (3 weeks ago)

      You don’t need any program, you can make them read-only with Windows Explorer.

      If you wish to use tick data, that’s a different story – you can download TDS2 for that but in that case you don’t really need to worry about preventing overwrites.
