Starting from MT4 Build 600+ onwards Metaquotes has changed metatrader files data structure and so there is a change in Installation of Custom MQL4 indicatorsAdvisors. The change happened majorly because Starting from Windows Vista onwards, Microsoft has introduced a restriction on writing to Program Files directory. And mostly programs are not allowed to store their data in Program Files folder if User Account Control (UAC System) is enabled.
So metaquotes placed all its files, expert advisors, indicators, templates , historical data outside the Program Files folder. Instead the files are placed inside the user data directory stored in a special place called terminal data folder.[wp_ad_camp_5]
