How to overcome 32 MT4 plaforms issue on dedicated server

Windows has 32 MT4 platforms limitation. To overcome the limitation on a dedicated server, you have to create a new Windows user.

While the limitation is 32 MT4 instances, we strongly advise to run up to 12 MT4 instances on one windows user to ensure the best server performance and make it easier to manage a high number of MT4 platforms on your server.

Let's take a look how to create an additional Windows user:

STEP 1:

After you successfully connect to the server, click on Search Windows icon at the bottom.

 

 

STEP 2:

In the search bar, type “Computer Management” and then press on the Computer Management Desktop app.

 

 

STEP 3:

Expand ‘Local Users and Groups’ , right-click on the ‘Users’ folder and press ‘New User…

STEP 4:

Enter the preferred:

-User name

-Full name

-Password

Uncheck box 'User must change password at next logon' and check 'Password never expires'.

Press ‘Create’ .

 

STEP 5:

Press on ‘Users’ folder.

STEP 6:

Right click on freshly created User, in this example ‘User1’ , and then click Properties.

STEP 7:

Choose ‘Member of’ tab.

STEP 8:

Press ‘Add’ .

STEP 9:

In the text box type ‘Administrators’ and press ‘Check Names’.

STEP 10:

Press OK.

STEP 11:

Repeat the same process and add ‘Remote Desktop Users’ .

STEP 12:

If you see 3 memberships in total, press ‘Apply’ and ‘OK’.

STEP 13:

Close the current running remote desktop session.

Now from your Local PC, log-in with your freshly created user.

 

 

You should be now logged in as a new user. You can start another up to 32's MT4 platforms here. If you need more, create one more user.
