Hello,

We don't recommend using Lazarus because there are many problems with this program.

You can use any Delphi version, you can Google for Delphi7_Lite_Full_Setup_v7.3.3.0_Build_2009-6-22_.rar file
This version should be ok for creating indicators and strategies.

Hello

Thank you for the update and screenshot.

Sorry, but you can't see the source code of .dll file. .dll file is the analog of .ex4 file in MT4, so this is a compiled file and its source code can't be seen.

You need have .dpr or .pas extension of the file to see its source code.

You can find .dpr files with a source code of indicators in the C:\ForexTester3\Examples\Indicators\Delphi\IndicatorsSrc folder by default.
