MT4 is the most popular trading software to do Forex trading. We did extensive research on the best Windows to run MT4 on it here at Router Hosting.
Here is our finding, Because MT4 is an older application and also written in x86 architecture it does not run well on the newer Windows. If you run it on any following Windows (including Windows Server 2019, Windows Server 2016, Windows Server 2012R2, Windows 10) It will hang and use high usage CPU which your VPS will respond too slow and hangs.
You must load your VPS with Windows Server 2008R2 to run MT4 on it. We do recommend only using Windows Server 2008R2 or Windows 7 to load MT4 software.
Here at Router Hosting, we offer Windows Server 2008R2 optimized for MT4. For more information, please click here.
