And would still continue working (can open buy sell operations?) or would it be like "offline" mode if i do that? Does this create any problem?
Thanks for your answer!
No, not offline mode at all. Your platform will continue to work exactly as it is without any disruption to charts or accounts etc. All this method does is stop MT4 from being able to update.

Completely remove all access privileges to the directories where the updates are being stored.

Don't change the actual Ownership of the directories.

The primary directory is:
"%APPDATA%\MetaQuotes\WebInstall"

To block updates, revoke permissions to the download directory:
"%APPDATA%\MetaQuotes\Tester\LiveUpdate"

You'll need to know how to set Permissions and Security Settings for directories on your Windows but that's the guaranteed way of doing it.
good info...... thx jimmyboy 🙇‍♂️🙇‍♂️🙇‍♂️

Hi, I vaguely remember reading somewhere that if you block Metatrader from updating Metaquotes will somehow block you from using MT4. I did a google search to see if I could find the source of that info but I didn't find anything. If anyone comes across proof of that then please post it here. Thanks.

in your MT4 folder, you create a .txt file with the usual right click from your mous
then
you paste
terminal.exe /portable /skipupdate
in it
and you rename the .txt file in .cmd. Now you launch the terminal.exe by clicking the .cmd file. Always do this way and your terminal.exe will not update
Thanks for the step-by-step guidance. This is super useful :thumbup:
