Why download both ex4 and source if all you need is source?
If the MQ4 file is available for download, that's all you need.

The accompanying EX4 file will always be generated by MT4 once you install the MQ4 in your Indicator folder and hit "Refresh".

If a coder has chosen to protect their work and has only shared the (locked) EX4 file, this is the exact same file as the MQ4 but it's not editable, and you can't open it to fiddle around or look at the code.

Coders do this to prevent theft of their work etc.

There was a problem with the compiler. Mt indicators were not compiled automatically. For beginners, this was a problem. Therefore, we started uploading 2 files.
