Getbhavcopy version 2.1.10a released
13 Jan 2017
Getbhavcopy version 2.1.9a, which i released couple of days back, did happen to resolve the issues with NSE data download for most of the users. However some users still using Windows XP were reporting the following error message while trying to download data with version 2.1.9a:
Message Error checking version support for Getbhavcopy using static file. Message The underlying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a send.
This version addresses the problem faced by Windows XP users and they will be able to use Getbhavcopy.
For those who would like to know the root cause behing the issue, with Microsoft no longer supporting Windows XP, most websites are implementing HTTPs certificates that remove support for the RC4 cipher - the best one in Windows XP. With the Github servers no longer supporting the RC4 cipher, XP was unable to communicate with Github over HTTPs.

It is a matter of time as other sites will also follow suite and if NSE/BSE do this upgrade, then there is no way Getbhavcopy will work on your machine.
