  Testimonials
 

I have been using SignalCopy for 2 months and cannot praise enough both the product and service I have received. The copier software has functioned perfectly. It is very fast, and with its optional trade filters has enabled me to pick & choose which trades are copied, allowing me achieve what no other trade copier is capable of - and I have used several of them. When I have contacted support regarding settings and functionality, they have responded swiftly and comprehensively on each occasion. I have no reservations in recommending SignalCopy as the best MT4 trade copier available.

SignalCopy FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)



Category: Main -> Metatrader and Windows compatibility

Question
·  Are your products compatible with all Windows versions?

Answer
·  Are your products compatible with all Windows versions?


Metatrader 4 is supposed to work on all Windows platforms.
But on recent releases as Vista SP2 and Windows 7 it seem not working 100%.
This is happening especially when Expert Advisors work with external DLL.
On those systems some dll are loaded at a wrong memory address or Metatrader overlap some memory addresses allocated for specific dll.

SignalCopy tools was tested on all Windows platforms starting with Windows 2000 on 32 bits and  64 bits versions.
All tools was also tested on Linux and proved to work.

Most problems were reported on Vista and Windows 7 and we had to rewrite dll files to workaround problems with those OS.
Please note, is not fault of our DLL or experts advisors, is compatibility of Metatrader with Vista ans Windows 7.
