You don't need to build it, just install it by double clicking on the downloaded file.
@RsiAtr II: 18 Sep 2014, 17:12
Dear Traders, All algorithms that you download from cTDN are already compiled. Once you install cBot to the platform (by double clicking on the file) it is ready to be used. You need to compile (build) cBot only if you made a change in the source code. If you do not change code of the algorithm you do not need to compile (build) it.

Your indicator cannot be opened. Please reupload it.

Yes, you can specify AutoRescale = false for Indicator attribute

Please use GetIndexByExactTime method instead of iterating all indexes. It will speed up your indicator.

Hello, Those are actually warnings not errors. We will fix that in the future releases. You can use the downloaded cBot without even building it. The new method of downloading and installing cBots and Indicators does not require you to build them unless you need to modify the code.

You may specify the timezone in the Indicator Attribute [Indicator(IsOverlay = true, AutoRescale = false, TimeZone = TimeZones.UTC)]

@What’s New in cTrader Web 4.5: 26 Jan 2023, 10:20
cTrader Web 4.5 Presents Guest Mode, Multiple Charting, and Copy Improvements
The brand-new version of cTrader Web 4.5 comes with updates for all of you, our cTrader users — whether you are beginners who are still getting to know the platform, or professional traders who are long familiar with the interface.
The new Guest Mode feature gives you the chance to experience the cTrader Web environment as if you were already part of the cTrader club. The new cTrader Web version also features new chart additions, as well as various improvements to cTrader Copy.
Be Our Guest!
Users can now enjoy the cTrader web application and its features without registering. This allows users to experience the cTrader Web environment before deciding to join the cTrader club. Many features are available to try: non-registered users can check the market, access real-time price points, view copy strategies, read the financial news, view the economic calendar and much more. Just send the link to cTrader Web to your friends and they will be able to open cTrader right away!
Find out more in our Help Center.
Interact with Indicators Directly on the Chart
Users can now interact with indicators directly on the chart for increased convenience. Indicators are easily viewable as panels in the top left-hand corner of the chart and the settings of all active indicators are now available with just one click. Traders can also hide indicators or delete them directly from the chart.
Learn About the Renko Chart
The name Renko is derived from the Japanese word “renga”, meaning “brick”. Renko is a chart type that ignores time, so its movement is based solely on price. A bar will be built when the price rises or drops by the targeted number of pips. In cTrader, the Renko chart can be found in the Timeframes section above the charts area.
Find out more in our Help Center.
Learn About the Range Chart
The range bar chart is similar to the Renko chart in that it is not time-based and movement is based solely on price. This type of chart is based on a given range of pips from the opening price of a bar. In cTrader, the range chart can be found in the Timeframes section above the charts area.

Enjoy the Improved cTrader Copy
cTrader Copy has undergone multiple improvements:
- Improved UI of Strategy Page
The strategy page UI has changed to become even more clear and convenient for use
- Simplicity of Copying, Resuming Copying and Adding Funds to Strategy
Now when you start copying, resume copying or add funds to a strategy, the process only requires some very simple actions. These actions can be performed from multiple places within the interface. Additionally, trading accounts in the account selector now display the copying status: "Started", "Stopping" or "Stopped".
- Option to Automatically Add New Copied Strategies to Favorites
For additional convenience, users can now choose to automatically add new strategies they are following to Favorites by ticking the appropriate box in Settings.

@What's New in cTrader Desktop 4.6: 25 Jan 2023, 08:48
cTrader Desktop 4.6 Introduces cBots Fault Tolerance, New Methods in Automate API, and Backtest Improvements
It is with great pleasure that we announce the release of the brand-new version of cTrader Desktop 4.6, which comes with various valuable updates to cTrader Automate, as well as multiple convenience perks for manual trading.
Enjoy Uninterrupted Operations with Fault Tolerance of cBots
A cBot will now continue running even if an unhandled exception occurs. Additionally, algo developers can now handle such errors using a new "OnException" method in Automate API. Find out more in our Help Center.
Customise Mouse Wheel Actions
Users can now choose the preferred action for the mouse wheel on charts: zoom in/out or scroll.
Use Local Storage
Local storage is a convenient way to save data on a user’s computer without requesting full access, even if cBots and indicators stop or start again. Find out more in our Help Center.
Backtest on Renko and Range Charts
Our users requested it, so we did it! Now users can backtest cBots on Renko and range charts.
Calculate Volume Based on Risk
We have added several new Automate API methods to calculate order volume or stop loss distance in pips based on acceptable risk.
Simplify Your Exchange Rate Conversion
The new "Convert()" method in Automate API allows algo developers to effortlessly convert currencies using the latest market rates. This means that algo developers no longer need to manually code the conversion process and can now benefit from an automated solution. Find out more in our Help Center.
Differentiate by Instance ID
Every running cBot and indicator instance now has its own ID that is saved by the system even if cTrader restarts and can be used by developers in algo programming.
Define Color Parameter Type
Developers can now add color parameter types to their algorithms. Users can set up color parameters using the color picker.
Export cBot Optimization Parameters
Algo developers can now save, export and re-use their cBot optimisation settings: an extra time-saving convenience perk.
Backtest on Historical Conversion Rates
Currency conversion in backtesting has become even more precise because it is now based on historical conversion rates.

No we can't. We can only investigate this if we have the cBot code.
@cTrader UNRESPONSIVE - Massive RAM usage: 19 Jan 2023, 11:26
Memory leaks in the main process can be caused by an algo too. If you can share the source code with us, we would be happy to have a look and determine the root of the problem.
