Hey @JayBee

I don't have a video but I have the link and step by step if that helps: 

1.     Download MetaTrader 4 from http://www.ig.com/content/dam/publicsites/igcom/mt4/ig4setup.exe

2.     Once downloaded, launch the setup file

3.     The installation will start with an introduction to MT4, click ‘Next’ to proceed

4.     Review the terms and conditions, and click ‘Next’ if you agree to these

5.     Choose the directory on your PC to install MT4 to. From here you can also choose to add a desktop icon and to launch MT4 once the installation is complete. Once satisfied, click Next

6.     MT4 will now start installing

7.     Once complete the platform will open automatically. You can also launch MT4 from your desktop, or via the Start menu.

All the best

and once you have mt4 downloaded and running on your computer click File > Add an Account > Live > Existing account  and enter the login and password you received from IG in the emails.

Thanks for trying to help, I think I have the terminal downloaded properly now. but still not getting a positive result here.   can I not use this with demo maybe? and the "server details" I have no idea where that comes into play

to add a live or demo account click File > Add an Account > highlight demo or live.

Live > Existing account and connect using the logon and password given in emails.

Demo > just click 'new account' and the platform will generate a new login and password.

Both live and demo tabs will be displayed in the Navigator Tab and you can flick back and forward between the 2.

(must check the 'receive newsletter' box when it comes up)
