MT4 has been designed to be used on a PC. This is because it uses a .NET framework, which is not supported on Mac. With that being said, there are methods that you can use to launch MT4 on a Mac, such as using a VPS or third-party software available directly from the MetaTrader 4 website.

Before going ahead and installing MT4 on a Mac, you should research your chosen method carefully. This is because the process may be unstable and could cause damage to your computer. Please remember that non-official websites which promise to show you how to install MT4 on a Mac could be infected with malware.

To install MT4 on Windows, follow the steps set out here. Once the download is complete, start the download wizard and follow the on-screen prompts.
