How to Auto Start Meta Trader when VPS Restarts

When a restart occurs, it can disrupt trading operations, especially for those who rely on trading robots. Therefore, to minimize distractions and maximize trading performance, it is highly recommended for traders to activate the auto start feature on Meta Trader. With this feature, after restarting the VPS, Meta Trader will automatically resume running without the need for manual intervention. This ensures that your trading activities continue with minimum hiccups despite interruptions on the VPS.

Note: This tutorial currently only works on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2012. Windows 10 Lite doesn't work yet.

If you previously used Windows 10 Lite, we recommend changing to Windows 7 or Windows Server 2012
