How to Convert EX4 to MQ4 Files in MetaTrader 4


How to Convert EX4 to MQ4 Files in MetaTrader 4




If you are a forex trader who uses MetaTrader 4 (MT4) as your trading platform, you may have encountered EX4 and MQ4 files. These are files that contain executable code or source code for expert advisors (EAs), indicators, and scripts that can enhance your trading experience. But what is the difference between EX4 and MQ4 files, and how can you convert one to another? In this article, we will explain the basics of EX4 and MQ4 files, and show you how to convert EX4 to MQ4 files using different methods.


What are EX4 and MQ4 Files?




EX4 and MQ4 files are both related to the MetaQuotes Language 4 (MQL4), which is a programming language for developing trading robots, technical indicators, scripts, and function libraries for MT4. MQL4 is based on the C++ language, and has a similar syntax and structure.

MQ4 files are the source code files of MQL4 programs. They contain the human-readable code that defines the logic and functionality of the program. You can edit, modify, or compile MQ4 files using the MetaEditor, which is an integrated development environment (IDE) for MQL4 that comes with MT4.


EX4 files are the compiled files of MQL4 programs. They contain the machine-readable code that can be executed by MT4. You cannot edit or modify EX4 files, but you can run them on MT4 as EAs, indicators, or scripts. You can also attach them to charts, or use them in other MQL4 programs using the iCustom function.


Why Convert EX4 to MQ4 Files?




There are several reasons why you may want to convert EX4 to MQ4 files. For example:



  • You have an EX4 file that you want to modify or improve, but you do not have the original MQ4 file.



  • You have an EX4 file that you want to learn from or study, but you cannot access the source code.



  • You have an EX4 file that you want to verify or check for errors, bugs, or malicious code.



  • You have an EX4 file that you want to customize or optimize for your trading style or strategy.



  • You have an EX4 file that you want to share or sell, but you want to protect your intellectual property rights.




How to Convert EX4 to MQ4 Files?




There are different methods for converting EX4 to MQ4 files, depending on the version of MT4 and the type of EX4 file. Here are some of the most common methods:


Method 1: Using a Decompiler




A decompiler is a tool that can reverse-engineer executable code into source code. In other words, it can convert EX4 files into MQ4 files by restoring the original code structure and logic. However, there are some limitations and risks associated with using a decompiler:



  • A decompiler may not be able to recover all the information from the EX4 file, such as variable names, function names, comments, or formatting.



  • A decompiler may produce obfuscated or unreadable code that is difficult to understand or modify.



  • A decompiler may introduce errors or bugs into the code that can affect the performance or functionality of the program.



  • A decompiler may violate the intellectual property rights of the original developer of the EX4 file.



  • A decompiler may contain malicious code that can harm your computer or compromise your trading account.




Therefore, using a decompiler should be done with caution and at your own risk. You should also respect the rights and wishes of the original developer of the EX4 file, and only use a decompiler for educational or personal purposes.


The most popular decompiler for MT4 is called Purebeam Decompiler, which was created by purebeam.biz in 2009. The latest version is 4.0.432.1, which was released in January 2013. This decompiler can handle most of the EX4 files created before February 2014, when MT4 build 600 was released. This build changed the way MQL4 programs are compiled, from byte code to binary code, making it much more difficult to decompile. Therefore, Purebeam Decompiler cannot decompile EX4 files created after build 600.


To use Purebeam Decompiler, you need to download the software from the official website or from other sources on the internet. You can use the software for free, but you need to register and activate it with a license key that you can obtain by filling out a form on the website. After installing and activating the software, you can follow these steps to decompile an EX4 file:



  • Launch the Purebeam Decompiler and click on the "Open" button.



  • Select the EX4 file that you want to decompile and click on "Open".



  • Wait for the decompilation process to finish. You will see a message saying "Decompilation completed successfully" or "Decompilation failed".



  • If the decompilation was successful, you will see the MQ4 file in the same folder as the EX4 file. You can open it with MetaEditor and edit it as you wish.




Method 2: Using an Online Service




If you cannot use a decompiler or if your EX4 file is created after build 600, you may try to use an online service that can decompile EX4 files manually. These are teams of skilled professionals who have experience in restoring source code from EX4 files using various techniques and tools. However, there are also some limitations and risks associated with using an online service:



  • An online service may not be able to decompile every EX4 file, depending on the complexity and protection level of the file.



  • An online service may charge a fee for their service, which can vary depending on the size and difficulty of the file.



  • An online service may take a long time to deliver the MQ4 file, depending on their workload and availability.



  • An online service may not guarantee the quality or accuracy of the MQ4 file, or offer any support or warranty for their service.



  • An online service may not respect the intellectual property rights of the original developer of the EX4 file, or use your file for other purposes without your consent.




Therefore, using an online service should also be done with caution and at your own risk. You should also respect the rights and wishes of the original developer of the EX4 file, and only use an online service for educational or personal purposes.


One of the most famous online services for decompiling EX4 files is called EX4toMQ4.pro, which has been working since 2005. This service claims to be able to decompile about 85% of EX4 files, including those created after build 600. They also claim to offer fast delivery, reasonable prices, and high quality results. To use this service, you need to fill out a form on their website and upload your EX4 file. They will then contact you by email and inform you whether your file can be decompiled or not, and how much they will charge for their service. If you agree to their terms and conditions, you can pay them by PayPal or other methods, and they will send you the MQ4 file by email within a few days.


Method 3: Using MetaEditor




If you have access to the original MQ4 file of your EX4 file, or if you have permission from the original developer of your EX4 file, you can use MetaEditor to convert EX4 to MQ4 files. MetaEditor is an IDE for MQL4 that allows you to create, edit, compile, debug, and test MQL4 programs. You can access MetaEditor from MT4 by clicking on Tools > MetaQuotes Language Editor, or by pressing F4 on your keyboard. To convert EX4 to MQ4 files using MetaEditor, you can follow these steps:



  • Launch MetaEditor and click on File > Open.



  • Select the MQ4 file that corresponds to your EX4 file and click on Open.



  • Edit or modify the MQ4 file as you wish.



  • Click on File > Save As.



  • Choose a name and location for your new MQ4 file and click on Save.



  • Click on Compile > Compile or press F7 on your keyboard to compile the MQ4 file. You will see a message saying "Compilation successful" or "Compilation failed".



  • If the compilation was successful, you will see the EX4 file in the same folder as the MQ4 file. You can run it on MT4 as usual.
