@RoboTrade,

It is a Windows issue, and I am not expert in it. I hope somebody else will step in to give better advise.

Two ideas which come to my mind are:
1) Keep it outside "Program Files"
or
2) Run the .jar as an administrator (option usually available on right-click)

Read the thread at MultiCharts again. Read it again carefully and make sure you follow the instructions step by step. Do not skip instructions. You can make it work.

This problem on EconomicEventsDownloader is due to the fact that ForexFactory totally modified the underlying HTML format of its pages.

Enclosed please find a new version (v3) of EconomicEventsDownloader.jar which addresses the new way Forex Factory formats its calendar (underlying HTML).

As for previous versions, the enclosed ZIP also contains source code. This source code is useless for the execution of EconomicEventsDownloader.jar. It is just given as a reference if, for any reason (for instance: security), you prefer to review the code and compile yourself the .jar file.

I have not tested it. I mean... it works, but I have not made deep tests in order to check that the output files fully correspond to the content of Forex Factory calendar. Please check it if you want to use it.

Nicolas
