  2. Can somebody share a terminal.exe that still works on Windows XP please?

    It must be newer than, but older than ( does give an error on XP “… is not a valid win32 application”.

    Maybe someone can share terminal.exe ?
    Can you look?


    • Hi. Metaquotes ended up supporting Windows XP/2003/Vista it updates automatically at first launch on OS including Win7 and up to 10. If you want to prevent autoupdate use /skipupdate flag in terminal.exe shortcut.

      Ask your broker about minimal terminal version to connect their servers. Or try it by yourself here the link to 1127 build
