Requirements

Windows 7 or later.
Up to 13 GBs of free disk space, depending on entitlement to historical data.
An unmetered internet account, or one that isn't compromised by large downloads of historical data.
A supported charting/analysis application: (AmiBroker version 6.00 or higher) (RightEdge 2010 build 57 or higher).
Note: After NDU has been installed, it requires a minimum of 500 MBs of free disk space on drive c: to keep functioning.

To install NDU

Download and then run the NDU installer.
Please Note: NDU is allowed to be installed on 2 machines that belong to the subscriber and are for his or her personal use.

Installation Paths

The NDU application is installed by default under the "Program Files" folder -
c:\Program Files\Norgate Data Updater.

The NDU database is installed by default under the "ProgramData" folder -
c:\ProgramData\Norgate Data

We recommend that users follow the default installation paths. If alternate paths are defined, please make sure that - Note 1: The "ProgramData" folder may be a hidden folder on your machine. Wherever the database is installed, it can be accessed directly from NDU by way of Settings > Database Location > View Database folder contents.
Note 2: If the intention is to use NDU on 2 machines, we strongly recommend installing the database on both machines as opposed to using a remote shared storage facility.

Initial Data download

The historical data will be downloaded automatically when an update is performed for the first time. This may take a long time, depending on the amount of data you are entitled to and the speed of your internet connection. Approximate file download and on-disk sizes are shown here.

Notes:

After installation, the NDU application icon will appear on the Windows taskbar.

NDU Taskbar Icon

The application must remain open for automatic updates to occur (after working with the application, take care to minimise it rather than close it).

Various Start-up options can be found under Settings > Program Start-up.

Changing the Database location

  1. Click Settings > Database Location and make a note of the existing location.
  2. Close NDU and any 3rd party charting/analysis applications that may access the data.
  3. Create a new (empty) folder in the desired location and give it a suitable name. Please note - the location cannot be under "Program Files".
  4. Move (or copy) all of the existing database files to the new location.
  5. Open NDU and click Settings > Database Location. Then enter the new folder path or browse to and select the new folder.
  6. Any database files not found in the new location will be downloaded with the next update.

Installing NDU on a new machine

NDU counts the number of unique machines that are logging-in to get data under the subscriber's username/password. If 2 machines are already being used, and you wish to install on a new machine, the procedure is as follows -

UnInstalling

Before uninstalling NDU, make sure that the application is closed. The uninstall procedure may be used to uninstall the application alone or the application and the database. To access uninstall, go Start > All Programs > Norgate Data Updater > Uninstall.
