How do I add another MT4 instance?Last Updated: June 18, 2019
By default, you are unable to run more than one Metatrader platform at a time. Through the installation process, there is a way of running two MT4 platforms at the same time. To run two instances of the Metatrader platform on your PC, you will need to install a second instance of the platform but in different directories on your PC / VPS.
Step 1) First, download the installer and run the file. You will then be prompted by the window below. To select where the program is installed, please agree to the license agreement then click the 'Settings' to bring up the installation directory settings.
Step 2) By default it will install to C:\Program Files (x86)\MetaTrader – Pepperstone
Step 3) Then, complete the process again but install a second copy into a folder with a different name, such as: C:\Program Files (x86)\MetaTrader – Pepperstone2
You should now be able to run MT4 twice on your VPS or workstation.
