When you start Getbhavcopy for the very first time, you will notice that the date selections and the ‘Download’ button are disabled. This is because Getbhavcopy Options are not yet configured. Setup Getbhavcopy Options. Once the options are set, the date range selections and ‘Download’ buttons will be enabled, and you will be able to download bhavcopy data.
1)Windows 7 , 8 or 10 or higher versions
2)Starting version 2.1.4a, Getbhavcopy requires .Net Framework 4.0 to be installed for it to work. I recommend using the .Net Framework 4.0 standalone installer or higher versions.
Now Press the Download button to download the EOD data in txt file format directly from NSEindia and BSEindia portals which can be later imported into trading softwares like Amibroker, Metastock or Fcharts.
The only disadvantage is the EOD data downloaded from NSE and BSE portals are not adjusted to corporate actions like Split, Bonus, Mergers, Dividends, Name Change etc. One have to take care of the same manually in their trading softwares.
