NEST Plus Registration and Installation

October 11, 2012

Registering on Nest Plus:

Your ZT will be pre-enabled for Nest Plus through which you can enjoy free charting and algoZ for life. This can take a maximum of 48 hours from when your account is opened. If you don’t want to wait until then, you can go ahead and register on your own and this will take you just a couple of minutes. However, note that if you register with Nest Plus on your own as an individual, you will not get to use algoZ for free! It’s best to wait for the automatic mapping from Zerodha as Nest Plus through us offers you a lot of free plugins as mentioned in the following link. If Nest Plus is not already registered on your system, please follow the steps below:

  • The following window will show up when you login. Click on No and then click Install Now. Once you click on Install Now a new window pops up, click on Yes.



  • You will see the below window, wait for a few minutes for the auto-installation to complete.




  • Once the plus installation is complete, you will see the following window. Please enter the details as mentioned below and you are setup with Nest Plus. If you don’t see this, you can access the registration page by clicking on the Nest Plus link on ZT and then clicking on registration.

You cannot experience what Nest Plus is about without registering on it. If you do register as an individual, you’ll definitely not get the benefits a Zerodha client gets, so ideally it’s best to wait for your ID to be mapped by Zerodha directly so you can enjoy all features without any hassle.

What should I do if Nest Plus doesn’t install properly?

Sometimes Nest Plus fails to install its updates correctly when you click Install Now if there is a conflict between the older versions of NOW and/or Zerodha Trader on your system. In such cases, there is a workaround you can use so that you can have the latest version of Nest Plus on your system at all times. It’s important to have the latest version of Nest Plus to make sure that there are no bugs and that you’re getting the most out of the tools provided. Your Nest Plus version varies depending on the version of Zerodha Trader.

Check out this image to ascertain which version of Nest Plus you should be downloading. This page can be accessed by going here.

Once you’ve identified which version of Nest Plus you need to be using, here’s how you can make it happen in just a few minutes.

First, you need to download and install – The file will have an extension called .msi and this can be installed by just double clicking it.

Once downloaded, make sure you install Nest Plus in the folder where ZT is. The folder where Zerodha Trader is installed usually is C:\\Program Files\Omnesys\NEST3 or it could be installed inย C:\\Program Files(x86)\Omnesys\NEST3

Given below are a series of four images clubbed together describing the installation process.

1. Box 1: This is what you see first, click Next.

2. Box 2: Info on what’s in store for you with this update of Nest Plus.

3. Box 3: Most important box – Change the destination folder for installing Nest Plus to the folder where ZT is installed. To know where ZT is installed, just right click on the Zerodha Trader shortcut on your desktop and select Properties. In the Properties window, you’ll see the path where ZT is installed.

4. Box 4: Keep clicking Next until you get the Finish option.


That’s it. You’re done. You now have the latest version of Nest Plus on your system. To cross check the version of Nest Plus on ZT, press Ctrl + Shift + P and you’ll see a box like what you see below confirming your version.

At the end of it all, you’ll think it was really easy. The key is to know how.

Happy Trading,

    Support service seems to be slower than its expected in stock markets. i have open ticket which is not being replied. Timely Technical guidance is expected where even the client should be happy and even zerodha by generating revenues of clients trades. Feeling sick looking at slow response.

      Hey Ajay. I believe this is the issue with the settlement of the ETF you got as part of an NFO? Banks don’t settle these transactions normally. As soon as we spotted this, we contacted the bank to get the settlement done.

    • Matti says:

      Hey Yogesh.

      Automated trading isn’t allowed for retail traders in India I’m afraid. You’d have to get your strategies approved by the exchanges, which is a long and expensive process. At the end of it, approvals aren’t guaranteed either. Can you write to tsiva[at] for details?

    Dear Sir,

Please do the needful.


    • Venu says:

      Change is a little difficult to get used to but then it’s for the good. We’ve phased out the older version of the mobile and are concentrating on providing you a seamless experience on Kite app . The Kite mobile app is advanced and user friendly in many ways. It’s only a matter of time before you get used to it.

    As per AMibroker: Should I use


    1. Does this 2nd parameter as โ€œCompleteโ€ correct or not? If not, what should be written?
    2. Does third parameter i.e. quantity is no of shares we used in placeorder() ?
    3. Does 4th parameter is the price which has been used in Placeorder() originally?

    Any help

  49. ekantha says:

    Kamath sir,
    I opened account with zerodha and very first day disappointed.
    I use only Mobile app for trading.But Zerodha sucks a lot in mobile.(i dont use Kite html 5)

    Earlier I had Geojit BNP selfie App which is quite smooth and fast even in 2G network.(But Brokage is High)

    So,its frustrating to trade on Nest app which is too slow and having login problems like session expired.
    I even complained with your support team and they are helpless.

    So,build a compact ,fast and simple app in KBs.

    I am using Nest Plus API and unable to use

    GetPlusVersion() and GetOrderStatus() function as I don’t know what I parameter I should pass in function 1 and 2. Please help,
    1. What are the parameters I should provide to both functions?
    2. What is the return type / value, I should expect as an out put from these 2 functions?

    • algogeek says:

      If you are using Nest Plus API (PlusAmi.dll in amibroker ) then as per the Nest Plus API predefined functions

      for GetOrderStatus() function you have to use Plus_GetOrdStatus(string sOrderRefNo)

      Plus_GetOrdStatus: This method is used to query the status of particular order (pointed by OrderRefNo). Once we call this method for order1 status, filled qty,fill price of order1 are copied to Plusv_OrdStatus, Plusv_OrdFQty, Plusv_OrdFPrice respectively.These variables can be accessed in afl file directly like if(Plusv_OrdStatus == โ€œOpenโ€).

      GetPlusVersion() function is not there as per documentation of Nest Plus API

  52. AJEESH says:

    I am new customer of zerodha User ID: RA7032 my trading account opened in two days back I am download latest version of nest and nest plus but whenever I login to nest nest plus login failure,22 tab open is it because my client id is yet to be mapped on nest plus? whatโ€™s the real problem?

  53. Sharad says:

    I am stopped using Nest Plus recently. However, post logging in the NEST Trader system, the Nest Plus login window pops us automatically. I have to click cancel two times to remove it. I couldn’t find anywhere where I can disable this auto login window of Nest Plus. Can you pls advice me how to remove this auto pop up of Nest Plus login window post logging on NEST trader.


    • Hanan says:

      Nest Plus is now paired with NEST so it is a unified system. You will have to also login to Nest Plus at least once… after this, it will never ask you for the password again. The username and password for Nest Plus is usually ZERODHA_CLIENTID (all caps). Please try this and get back to our Support team if you’re still having issues.

      We’d recommend an upgrade to ZT version 3.11.2. The latest version of ZT can be downloaded here:

      During installation of ZT (3.11.2) a version of Nest Plus gets installed but that is the older version ( so you need to download the latest version ( from our website and install it:

      Alternatively, you can call us on 080-40402020 and one of our support agents will be happy to help.

      In Zerodha Trader, the market watch is customizable as per your request. Generally, about 15 scrips is required by most of our customers. However in order to accomodate an active trader, we have set a scrip limit of 30 scrips.

      Higher the number of scrips, more data needs to be sourced from the system which could lead to an impact on the performance. However if you need to add more scrips, send us an email at [email protected] and we shall consider it on a case-by-case basis.

  55. Gnanaguru says:

    i got this message. i cant see nest plus chart. please help. Thanks.

    • Hanan says:

      It seems to me that you’ve got some installation issue with Nest. What you need to do is uninstall this version and install the latest version available on our downloads page. Or you can simply go to

      Once you’ve installed the latest version, you need to download the version of Nest Charts from our downloads page, unzip it and paste it in C://Program Files/Omnesys/Nest3.

      Call our Support number if you have problems doing this.

  56. sibaprasaddash says:

    I am having problem launching Nestplus.I have the latest version of ZT 3.11.2 and nest plus still I am unable to use Nest plus.sometimes It says — download updates/sometime invalid login Id or password.tried zerodha client Id as password also.Zt hangs often while trying to launch nest plus. i allowed Zt in Antivirus program.can I use zerodha Pi because I think nest plus is not pre enabled for this Zt 3.112.I have used nest starter when i was in ZT 3.1.0.after the update i got the problem.I have also upadatee ZT with the critical update.Kindly help

    • Hanan says:

      The latest version Nest Plus is and not which is why you could be having a problem. What you need to do is this…
      1. Click here to download the latest version of Nest Plus which is now called Nest Charts.
      2. Unzip the folder and copy all the contents.
      3. Paste the contents in C:\\Program Files\Omnesys\Nest3
      4. Run Zerodha Trader now.

      This should get you the latest version of charts. If it’s still not working, you can get in touch with our support number on 080-40402020

      If you’d like to use Zerodha Pi, you can go to and request for Pi.

  59. Koushik Paul says:

    Surprised that you folks are sticking up with omensys – their software sucks, nest plus is a joke, and application freezes 10 times per hour. When will indian traders get treated with respect and not fooled over & over again?

    • We are on our way out Koushik, with our new in-house platforms Pi and Kite. Pi should be out by Jan 1st week and will replace NEST. Kite will replace the web and mobile apps.

  60. DHIRENDRA says:

    Hi NITHIN,
    As you said , Pi will be good only after 1st January ,leaving us with no other option than to use ZT.
    On top of it ,with the new update of zerodha trader and nest plus , everything has gone out of place.

    I want the nest plus version with “heikin ashi ” and “renko charts”.
    So can you help me fixing the problem.

  61. sham says:

    Hi Hanan,
    Even in the critical update video ( ) you posted, when you open Nest Plus charts you get white charts and not the usual black background charts. Why is it so? What needs to be done to fix this? I am having same problem.


  62. kpriya2308 says:


    I have opened my ZT account. How will i know that my ZT trading account is mapped with Nest Plus? What is the username and password for Nest Plus? i have tried login nest plus with my Zerodha id for both username and password but it does not work. Please help.


    • Hanan says:

      Your ZT trading account is automatically mapped to Nest Plus by a backend mechanism, so all you need to do is just log into Zerodha Trader. Usually, your Nest Plus account is mapped with Zerodha Trader within 2 days from account opening. This will give you seamless access to charting and a few other features on Nest Plus.

      Try these two options, and if both of them fail send an email to [email protected] requesting to enable Nest Plus for your account.
      1. Username and Password: CLIENTID
      2. Username and Password: ZERODHA_CLIENTID

  63. Rahul Jha says:


    I recently joined Zerodha about a week back. The nestplus installation doesnt work.. Whenever i try to login in to nestplus the whole application freezes, then I have to end the ZT from task manager.

    Kindly help

    • Hanan says:

      It shows that you’re using the latest version of Zerodha Trader so Nest Charts should work without any stability issues for you. This means that there could be a ports issue if you’re unable to access only the Nest Charts server? Are you trying this at home or office?

      If you’re trying this at home, please call our support number and our execs will be happy to help.

    hoping to get my hands on zerodha pi,,being new user i doubt that they will enable my id to pi beta version

  65. brajendra singh says:

    HI Vikas,
    I think U need to run ZT as an adminitrator
    this might help to resolve the problem
    Right click on ‘ZT application’ from your desktop
    Click on properties then ‘Open File location’
    A folder will open where in you need to select ‘ZT exe’
    Right click on it and click on properties
    Select ‘Compatibility’ Tab
    Select ‘Change settings for all users’
    Check ‘Run this program in compatibility mode for:’
    Check ‘Run this program as an administrator’
    Click ‘OK’
    Click ‘Apply’ and ‘OK’

    • vikash kumar says:

      did everything brother but still the same problem lies,, after contacting zerodha they told me that they would resend the client registration request nd i have to wait atleast 2 days to get it activated …. nd guess what 4 days passed already but the problem still persists ๐Ÿ™ after getting such a favourable review i opened my acccount with zerodha , now i m thinking why i did that ๐Ÿ™

  66. vikash kumar says:

    hanan i entered login id nd password as you said ie ZERODHA_CLIENTID.. but after logging with this username nd password ,,it shows invalid password or login id ๐Ÿ™

    • Hanan says:

      Did you try both methods? One is ZERODHA_CLIENTID and another one is only CLIENTID

      You need to use the same information for both user ID and password. If this still doesn’t work, you just have to call us.

  67. suhas says:

    • Hanan says:

    From the past three days i am unable to use the nest plus charts for NSE AND CDS Scrips. It works well for MCX But nse scrips it works only for one minute chart if i try to select a higher time frame above that . The software crashes with a error report with the following log ,

    i am new customer of zerodha ,,my trading account opened in 21/nov/2014… after going through zerodha website i was able to download latest verion of nest and nest plus,, but whenever i login to nest,, nest plus login failure,22 tab opens…is it because my client id is yet to be mapped on nest plus???

    • Hanan says:

      Yes, Vikash. This may have been the issue. Why don’t you try logging in today on Nest Plus and checking out whether you’ve got the right ID mapped.
      Your login ID and password for Nest Plus is ZERODHA_CLIENTID.

      If this doesn’t work, feel free to write to [email protected] or call 08040402020

    sorry to disturb you again ….when i download new version of nest plus as you mention its showing like this .how to solve this ?

    • Hanan says:

      Well, this means that you’re not using the right Nest Plus ID to login for analysis. We’ll get someone to get in touch and assist you with this.

  73. SHAKKIR says:

    When i downloaded is 3.11.2 version that not opening its showing faild to open

    • Hanan says:

      I think you don’t have administrative privileges on your computer which is why you get the error “Failed to Open…” Why don’t you right click on the shortcut and choose “Run as Administrator” which should help resolve this.

      If it still doesn’t work, uninstall all versions of Zerodha Trader and reinstall the latest version. Then right click and choose “Run as Administrator”

  74. raj says:

    after copy paste of 2.9,0,0 zip in the appropriate folder this msg is coming , i m using nest trader version as well

    pls look into the matter

    • Hanan says:

      This doesn’t look like a Nest Plus issue. This issue is related to your computer’s connectivity… Once that’s reestablished with our servers you should be able to use ZT.

      Try the following:
      1. Ensure you are connected to the internet. Restart your modem just in case.

        This error message comes about if you haven’t upgraded to the latest version of Nest Plus. We’d advise you to first update to the latest version of Nest Plus by using the method mentioned below. If the problem still persists, don’t hesitate to call us.

        Kindly follow the below procedure in order to upgrade your Nest Plus plugin:
        Download the Nest Plus (zip) file from this link. Ensure you’re using Version 3.11.2 of Zerodha Trader. Do NOT use the older version.

        Once downloaded, you will have to unzip the folder, then open the folder Nest Plus and copy all the contents.
        Go to C://Program Files/Omnesys/NEST3 or C://Program Files(x86)/Omnesys/NEST3 and paste all the copied contents into it.
        While pasting the copied files, you will get a prompt “Confirm Folder Replace” for which you have to choose “Do this for all current items” and click on Yes. Once you’ve clicked on Yes, another prompt to Copy File would pop up for which you have to tick “Do this for all conflicts” and then select the Copy and Replace option.

        Once the above procedure is followed, your Nest Plus plugin would be upgraded and you should see black charts.

        Note that all of Zerodha’s clients are automatically registered on Plus to get additional features. To check if you’re registered on Plus as a Zerodha Client, do this:

        1. Go to Nest Plus* > My Nest Plus Account > Plus Dashboard on Zerodha Trader
        2. On Plus Dashboard check if your client ID shows up on top. If it does, great.
        3. If your client ID doesn’t show up, choose “Logout/Login with new Plus ID” and key in either of the following:
        a. username: CLIENTID or ZERODHA_CLIENTID
        b. password: CLIENTID or ZERODHA_CLIENTID
        *Note: This works only on your Zerodha account. If this still doesn’t work, please feel free to write back our call our support number.

    Hello Zerodha,

    Nest Plus asking update every time I log-in ZT from 2.8 to 2.9, even when i already update this two three times. I am using windows 8.1 64 bit and latest version of ZT.



    • Hanan says:

      This happens usually if you’ve got an installation of NOW on your system, or if you have the older version of Zerodha Trader installed. The best way to have a clear update for which I’ve attached the zip file of the latest version

      All you have to do is download this package, unzip it and put all the contents of the folder in C://Program Files/Omnesys/Nest3 or wherever Zerodha Trader has been installed. If you’re having problems doing this, just call our helpline.

  80. Hi Nitinji
    I am with jirodha from a year but not explored nest plus earlier. I installed the ZT software and made a nest plus ID of my own as I dint knew that zerodha automatically maps it. I supposed I had to register for Nest plus myself. I want it through zerodha only. please help.

    Thanks Nithin. Will reach out to them.

    I just got my Zerodha trading account last week. Loving it.
    I hope Zerodha registers me for my nest plus account. I understand from Zerodha support there is some server issue in registering. Any tentative timelines by when this would be resolved?

  83. Hi,
    I recently started using ZT SW version. And I have following few queries:
    1. Can I install ZT SW version on Ubuntu (14.04)? In case yes, can you pls share detailed steps.
    2. Charting feature is available on web terminal (HTML5 version) as well ?
    3. On using ZT SW version, I can always see a pop-up window “Update v2.9.0.0 for NestPlus is available”.
    Current version for NestPlus is
    For ZT SW, version is v3.11.2

    4. Other features like Equity margin calculator, BO&CO calculator are also available on ant ZT SW version??

    Pls reply.

    Vaibhav / Neha

    • Hanan says:

      Vaibhav/Neha, our answers are below:

      1. Yes, we have an Ubuntu version of ZT, but I’d advise you not to install it as it’s not really stable. The best option is to use the web version if you’re on any OS other than Windows.
      2. Yes, charting is available on HTML5, but it is really basic. You can only see intraday data and no analysis is possible.
      3. If you get a message to update your Nest Plus version, please follow as instructed. Alternatively, you can go to and download the necessary package and install it on your computer.
      4. All our features like calculators are web-based, so you can access them from anywhere.

    Hi, I recently switched over to ZT from NOW ( couple of weeks ). But i am not getting the automatic registration for NEST Plus dialogue box, as indicated in the first figure in the this blog.

    Any workaround?

  94. Jimmyjoseph says:

    I am new to zt, and before reading this blog, I installed and registered nest plus. (However, note that if you register with Nest Plus on your own as an individual, you will not get to use algoZ for free) can i cancel that registration and in anyway can i get the nestplus features (including algoz) available for zerodha clients.

    • Hanan says:

      As long as you’re a Zerodha client and use ZT for trading, you should get to use algoZ for free. If you’re unable to use algoZ just send us an email to [email protected] with your client ID and we’ll have this resolved at the earliest.

  98. Ram says:


    WAS THIS THE PREVIOUS DATA FOR IT: O.H.L.C. = 6325, 6750, 6283, 6666 ????!!

    Why does the Nest ZT price watchlist and even the NEST PLUS charts show the data for NIFTY13DECFUT so shockingly unrealistic values since yesterday?

    Further, instead of the 6th Dec OHLC it is showing figures for SUNDAYS 8th Dec as the latest data!

    The story doesn’t end there. Open your ZT and open SNAP QUOTE DIALOGUE BOX!
    MY GOD! What’s this??!!

    Can anyone please enlighten me on this MYSTERY at your earliest?


    • There was mock trading held by the exchanges yesterday(saturday), for brokerages to test their systems and my guess is that it has got to do with this weird tick, and this is not an actual traded price. Ideally this 6666 should not show you from tomorrow onwards.

    i am using NEST trader. i want to know the charges to use NEST plus .

    • Hanan says:

      Nikhil, Nest Plus is a free tool for all of Zerodha’s clients. Additionally to the basic package of Nest Plus, we offer you algoZ which allows you to place trades semi-automatically at no additional cost. This benefit, again, is available only for Zerodha clients.
      The only thing that is payable on Nest Plus is the additional feature like taking stock tips from other third-party vendors on Plus.

    My mobile number is already registered with Nest Plus (since I was trying out NSE patshala).

    Can I use the same account (which was created earlier) with the Zerodha trader? i.e. will I be missing out some features when I am doing so?

    For example, when I logged in into the Nest Plus page, in “Nest Plus Dashboard” page, under “Your Subscriptions”, I get

    • Hanan says:

      In short, yes, Ram, you can use the same registration you had originally on Nest Plus. Note that if your account is on Zerodha Trader and you have been a customer of Zerodha for more than a week or so, then you’ll have access to most features on Nest Plus from ZT directly. For example, all customers of Zerodha are enabled on algoZ, Option Strategy, SPAN Calculator, etc., by default. For services such as Nest Plus Trading Plugin or Vantage Picks, you need to subscribe individually on your terminal by going to Nest Plus > My Nest Plus Account > Plus Dashboard. Once on Plus Dashboard, you’ll see services/products in blue and red. Blues are enabled free of cost by Zerodha. Red are enabled at a cost by Omnesys.

      Also, don’t worry about these expiry dates as they don’t matter. Zerodha will continue to renew those services for you. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi ,

    I have opened the account with Zerodha just two days back. I downloaded the Zerodha trader pack and installed it. I was trying to install Nest PLus on top of it. First I registered with NEST PLUS and then tried to install the software from the menu. But got the below error.Then I tried to install it from as mentioned in some previous post but could not download it. Tried to download it from Omensys website but the link is not working
    . Can anybody help ? Also just curious to know if I could use the semi automated feature offered by Zerodha using Nest started pack ? Do I need to download anything else ?

    Thanks and Regards,

      Nabarun, could you explain what error you faced when you tried to download and install from the Google drive folder? This has always worked for our clients.

      If you could be kind enough to call our office, we’ll access your computer and help you install the latest version of Nest Plus. Alternatively, please share your number here and we’ll be happy to call you and assist you.

  107. SJL13 says:

    I tried to follow the procedure. But I’ve been staring at this screen for about an hour now. My internet connection is working fine. Is there anything else that may be wrong here? Moreover, whenever I try to download the installation file from the Omnesysindia website, the file never downloads completely. The file size is shown as 6.9 MB, but the downloaded file turns out to be smaller than that. My last three downloaded installation files were of 1.7, 2.6 and 3 MB respectively. And I repeat, my internet connection is working properly. Help!

    • Hanan says:

      If you’ve already got an instance of Nest Plus installed in your system, there’s a possibility that the new installation may not work.
      Please click on this link:
      Once in this link, press Ctrl + S and download the Nest Plus package. Once downloaded, unzip the package and put all the files in C:Program FilesOmnesysNest3

      Let us know if you’re having problems doing this. This is very simple and always shows results. Downloading the update from Omnesys website doesn’t always work. Call us if you would like us to do this for you. Thanks!

    • SJL13 says:

      I was able to download the installation file after numerous attempts and install it. But had to consume enough caffeine to get an Olympics athlete team disqualified in dope test in the process. Dear Omnesys, kindly get your website in order. Damn! Dear Zerodha, I did not have the patience to wait for your reply and so, could not apply your remedy, which I reckon would have been effortless and caffeine-free in comparison. But thanks for your reply.
