MetaTrader and the Windows 10 Update

Dear Traders,

On October 17 Microsoft released the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update. This release has implications for MetaTrader platforms as it will change configurations and encryption keys of your operating system.

MetaTrader platforms combine all information with the local operating system, to protect your information.

Password Issues

In order to be able to access the MetaTrader platform after the update, we kindly ask that you save your passwords in a safe place before updating your operating system. Once you update, any passwords for your trading accounts that are stored locally on your computer will become invalid.

Because of the change of encryption keys, one activation token for applications purchased from the MetaTrader Market will be lost. As a result of this, MetaQuotes has automatically added an extra activation token for each purchased product.

We apologise for any inconvenience that this may have caused.

Best wishes,


Our awards
