No need to repost. Make sure the indicator's file name stays the same. If you're using Firefox, please read this: Firefox bug renaming files.

But it is the same, and I am using Chrome, verified the name here in the post is the same as I used it (look at the message also, same file name),
Basically I would love to understand why insert this limitation in the indicator in the first place.

What could be the problem with what I do? By the way, I'm using it inside an EA, not as a resource, but with iCustom.
Edit:
I forgot to mention the post where I found it, I was sure I quoted it:
viewtopic.php?p=1295419161#p1295419161

Thank you!

That protection is there because sometimes people will download the file and sell it as their own, hopefully this slows that down, might want to check your iCustom call in your EA.

H again,

What do you mean "might want to check the iCustom call"? It is quite a vague suggestion to me.
If it doesn't return an error, then it reads the indicator correctly, but for some reason the indicator returns these messages printed in the log file.
I'm a programmer for 12 years, I know MQL4 very well, but if this indicator perhaps calls on itself while running, then maybe the coding of it is incorrect, so it cannot be used in an EA.
If it only checks for its name, then the method to check the name should be changed, if you use WindowExpertName() it is not good, you should be reading it as suggested in the last part of this link:
https://docs.mql4.com/runtime/resources

Isn't there anyone who experienced the same issue I have? I sent my EA to another person, with the link to this website, and he received the same result, the buffers cannot be read in the EA, and these messages are printed over and over again.
Please help me figure it out, if you used it in an EA, then share how you used it, this is the first time I encounter such an issue and this name protection type.

Apologize didn't realize you had that much coding experience.
This is using a newer renaming protection hopefully it will work better in your EA after that not sure what else to do, not sure how you are calling it but if your using the trend buffer it is buffer #4.

hi, mrtools kindly add 2-3 deviation bands to this attached indicator.step - nema (mtf alerts arrows).ex4
Added a choice of deviation bands or atr band options, also updated the indicator a bit to now include auto adjust candles instead of the bars.

PS: To see an example on how ATR Bands & Custom Standard Deviation Bands differ, please see here: ATR Bands Vs Standard Deviation Bands.
