Options Oracle issue: Current configured preferred server is not available

Last updated on 17-Jun-2017

If you are an options oracle user and you are getting one of these weird error with Options Oracle as soon as you launch it, A simple fix is suggested below.
Error Message"Current Configured Preferred Server is Not Available. Using 'PlugIn Server US (CBOE)'

Simply extract the plugin file (link provided below) to your %appdata%\OptionsOracle folder (Create one if you don't have it already there) and run options oracle. Hurrah the error is gone and you will now be prompted to update plugins as well. You should also be able to see the list of plugins available in the configuration option. Enjoy!!!

Problem: Problem is with the plugin file hosted by Samosky. It has a space missing in its plugin xml file which causes issues with the plugins (e.g. NSE)

File as updated on 02-Sept-2013

NOTE: Please enter ^NIFTY as the symbol for Nifty. Lots of people are entering incorrect symbol which is why they don't see the data.


Use option Oracle from here: (Disclaimer: Not hosted by me. Got this from Traderji Group but tested and working)
Update 27-Mar-2014
People have reported issues with the software after NSE upgraded their site templates, so previous version may not work for downloading data for NIFTY. I have tried a quick fix for ^NIFTY and you can download the updated file at the following location (Thanks to the original uploader matsol)

Update 17 Jun 2017

Download the Options Oracle from this location

Please note:

  1. only ^NIFTY is working. Don't know about other symbols. Will try to take a look later.
  2. Not sure about the data correctness. Please verify and report an issue with screenshot if you think its incorrect 


Any issues with the options oracle or plug-in file, file a bug below I'll try to fix them as soon as possible.

Bug with Google search

Google search in general return provides correct answer to the question you ask it but I just discovered a bug with it

If you search for "who was the CM of up in 1992" it tells you VP Singh where as the correct answer should be Kalyan Singh. It incorrectly tells you about the CM of UP in 1982 (PM in 1990).

Hope someone from Google will take notice and will get it fixed. It sure is misleading.

and WTF

Visual Studio Online available in Windows azure

Windows azure has introduced a great new feature called “Edit in Visual Studio Online”. This feature brings great power of Visual Studio IDE to your browser. Earlier you could edit your website only from your workstation but this new feature will allow you to edit your site from anywhere in the world.

Enable it on your Azure Dashboard Configure section


After enabling it go to your dashboard and you will see a new Edit In Visual Studio Online link available on your right menu bar


Clicking on the link will take you to the online editor, where you can edit your code. It will allow you to work in your favorite IDE.


Not only you can edit your files here but you could also do file operations with the help of Console tool available. Just select console from the left toolbar. It is much easier to move/copy file here in this environment then trying to do it with the FTP client (I use FileZilla). It also allows you to unzip file so in case you need to quickly deploy something you can just upload a zip file and unzip using the console (It used to take me a lot longer to upload a website earlier now I just upload the wordpress/drupal zip and extract it online)


Kudos to Azure and VS Team for this excellent feature.
