For a long time, I have been compiling EAs in MT5 one by one in the Metaeditor and it was taking a VERY long time.
I just found a really fast way to do it.
I just pasted around 80 EAs into Data Folder > MQL5 > Experts > Advisors
Then I exit MT5
Then I relaunch MT5
All 80 strategies compiled themselves automatically 🙂

You can also just add them to Data Folder > MQL5 > Experts > Advisors
Then right click on expert advisors under “Navigator” and click on refresh, this will compile them for you without shutting down MT5 terminal.
I’ve compiled at lease 10 EA’s at a time this way with no issues.February 16, 2020 at 15:42 #38556SimonParticipant
For some reason, refreshing the navigator does not work in my copy of MT5. Perhaps it is something to do with the broker.
In any case, anyone with the issue of laborious compiling now has two solutions to try.February 16, 2020 at 18:56 #38577bigkndParticipant
That’s strange, it does take quite a few minutes for it to compile but does get there in the end.
Like you say though a couple of methods for people to try 😉February 20, 2020 at 9:31 #38858Petko AleksandrovKeymaster
