Install multiple MT4/MT5 on same PC

You can install and run multiple MetaTrader4 (MT4) / MetaTrader5 (MT5) apps on a single PC. If you wish to do so, make sure to change the installation folder name so it doesn't overlap with the existing MT4/MT5 folder name. Here we'll look at the steps required to install multiple MT4/MT5 apps on a single PC.

When installing multiple MT4 apps, change the shortcut name of the existing app from "MetaTrader4" to something else. This will let you create new shortcuts when you install additional programs. When changing the name of the shortcut, you may get the "File Access Denied" message. Click "Continue" to save the changes made.
