Normally your MT4/MT5 platform should automatically update itself whenever there is a new version released by MetaQuotes, the developer of MetaTrader trading platform.

If your MT4/MT5 is not updating itself, then you might have changed the setting in your MT4/MT5 to not update it automatically or simply due to restrictions of your computer device.

To update the version of MT4/MT5

There are mainly two ways to update your MT4/MT5 to the newest version.

  1. You can simply re-download your MT4/MT5 and replace it to the new one.
  2. Run your MT4/MT5 as administrator by right-clicking on your desktop icon, and click “Run as administrator”. Then when you re-open MT4, you will be prompted to complete a Live Update.

Updating MetaTrader4 is one important thing to do periodically in order to avoid any troubles for using an old version.

Some Forex brokers do not support old version of MT4/MT5.
