System Requirements

  • Windows XP or newer (Windows XP/Vista/7/8/8.1/etc.)
  • 1 GB of RAM or more
  • 10 MB of free disk space
  • MetaTrader 4 Build 401 or higher
  • .NET Framework 2.0 SP 2 or higher (Required only for the updater program, which can be disabled)


MT4 Floating Charts only needs to be installed once to service all of your MetaTrader 4 installations.

  1. Download and run the installer. If you downloaded the zip archive, you should extract the installer before running it.
  2. Follow the prompts.
  3. Register the software (if you haven't already done so in the past). Trial users can check the box next to TRIAL rather than entering a license key.

Finishing Up

If you unchecked the Chart Sync Module during installation, then you can skip this final step. Otherwise, you will need to enable DLL Imports in MetaTrader 4.

  1. In MetaTrader 4, go to the Tools menu and select Options.
  2. In the Options windows, select the Expert Advisors tab.
  3. Check the box next to Allow DLL imports and press OK.
Allow DLL Imports in MetaTrader 4

If you neglect to perform this step and the save locations feature is enabled, chart positions will be saved using the symbol and period of a chart rather than its unique identifier.


MT4 Floating Charts can be uninstalled using the uninstaller (shortcut name:Uninstall MT4 Floating Charts) located at %ProgramFiles(x86)%\MT4 Floating Charts\unins000.exe.
