  16. Dear Rajendran,

    The fix seems to work fine on Win XP, 7 and 8. I am not able to make it work on 8.1?

    Do you think you can guide me on how to make it work for Win 8.1?



  17. Dear Rajendran,
    The solution which you have provided did not work on my PC.
    My PC has Windows 8.1 with latest patch as OS.
    Do you have any other solution for the same.
    In fact on my PC after installing Patch provided by you was installed,
    the Servers listed earlier in the Drop Down menu disappeared,
    As your web page is not allowing ‘Paste’ can not provide Screen Shot,
    Warm Rgds,

      Users with Windows 8.1 OS facing this issue. Need to check with Deepak Shenoy if he had any fix for this. However in the mean time if you have Win 7 or XP machines you can try out there couple of people tested and it is working fine for them.

        1. Have just sent you the required email for Windows 8.1,

    but still not getting any nse plugin server in config

  32. i install option oracle , but erroe server not available plugin ( CBOE ).

  33. Hi Friend,

    I downloaded and followed steps ; No use; The drop down at config is blank and I cannot select any; I am using windows 7.1

    Is there any specific folder name into which the Optionoracle should be unzipped? What do you mean when you say Local folder? I unzipped into desktop into a folder named optionoracle

    After initialization at start of option oracle it gives error current configured preferred server is not available; using plugin server us (cboe) instead;

    then when we go to config the drop down on config is blank;

  34. The options oracle is not working even the online tool with parasing error on the online tool. Appreciate if you someone has a solution that they would be kind enough to share with the forum please. Thanks

  35. Sir, even i am not able to use optionoracle..in windows 7 64bit core i5. unable to configure it for nse servers and there is no server to select…only blank dropdown menu.
    thanks in advance.

  36. Is it not suitable for Windows XP ? .Because in config dialogue, in online server & stock exchange selection tab, there is no option, it is blank. and while initializing the message is showing- Current Configured preferred server is not available. Using ‘Plugin Server US (CBOE)’ instead.

  37. Hi Sir,

    not able to view the “Plugin Server India…” in the drop down menu. Please help.

    thank you in advance,

      1. Yes it only works on Nifty indices (NIFTY, BANKNIFTY, CNX IT etc) . There is still no working solution for Windows 8 for the stock options yet. Hopefully some good soul get it to work.

    1. only cash prices are updating but option chains are not loaded….. help if any can

    2. Yes. It was working for nifty so far. but last three days it stopped working. There is another sw named ” TRADOR” They are giving one month free. I just downloaded yesterday seems to be ok. It can be downloaded from this link,” http://www.tradoroptions.com/

        1. After 30 days it is 120$ for 2 years which comes to around 400/Rs per month which is not bad.

      1. it is not working

        tried every thing

        can some one update

        can u tel me what changes you have made

  38. If I search by NIFTY or BANKNIFTY under symbol field, it prompts for save or open the file liveIndexWatchData.json

    Where should I copy or save this file? The option data is not populated for NIFTY and BANKNIFTY
    But the individual Stock data are populated automatically while searching in the symbol field.

  39. Your site is too cool !!!!!
    i get a solution ….for any stock market related problem…

    Keep it up !!

    Warm regards
    Shikher Kanwar

  40. Thanks for solution.

    I am using this in Win 10 perfectly. Only issue is that it is showing only for ^NIFTY. Anyother symbol is showing not working either of any script or of Bank Nifty.

    Please give solution for this to use it fully.

    Also if possible please suggest some source on how to use this Options Oracle data

  41. I downloaded and unzipped the files as per instructions. I am using a Win 7 machine and was able to successfully download INFY values but not able to do it for NIFTY. What is the valid value to enter for NIFTY ?

    I tried NIFTY, ^NIFTY, ^NSEI, NIFTY50 , CNXNIFTY – but nothing works. I know the symbol has changed recently but would like to know from where is the application picking up the names from ? May be knowing that will help so that we can use the names referring to that SITE.

  42. Hi

    Thanks for sharing the plug in.

    However I am not able to load the data as it is not catching any symbol.

    Please share what needs to be done for the same.


    1. Hi Shailesh,

      Make sure you have downloaded latest software from above link.

      Here are steps:
      1. Download latest file from link given above
      2. Unzip file
      3. Run OptionsOracle.exe
      4. Click on Config -> General -> Online Servers & Stock Exchange Selection, and select above as shown above.
      5. Then try NIFTY or BANKNIFTY or any NSE script, it should work.

      Thank you.

      1. Dear Santosh Kumar Pasi,
        Thanks for the effort you are taking to provide general users with the Plug-ins,
        This is the 2nd time you did this for us, and many thanks for that,
        Hope NSE do not play with the Symbols again so that we will have to trouble you for the same.
        All the Best,

        Vipul Kaji

  43. Hi, Great work, I am using the latest version with plugin server 1.8.5.
    However recently its not working for indexes like NIFTY, BANKNIFTY. It is asking for file download location for any of the indexes and saves a .json file in any location we say. And after some time it shows symbol not found.
    Though its working for any of the stocks like ACC, LT etc.
    Please resolve the issue for indices too.

    1. Now Options Oracle is no more working. Some people re-written the plugin for Indian Markets same needs to be done for US Markets as well.
