Getbhavcopy version 2.1.7a released

With the number of issues faced by the community with Getbhavcopy version 2.1.6a I felt it would be best to release a new version, but in doing so, it would make sense to have some functionality released in the new version rather than simply rebuild version 2.1.6a.

Additionally, I used this opportunity to completely automate my...

Many users have reported that Getbhavcopy 2.1.6a is not working/not starting/being reported as a virus. If you are faciing this issue then I assure you that there is no virus in Getbhavcopy. Version 2.1.6a was compiled on a brand new machine where Visual Studio C# 2010 is the the fist thing I installed - to get Getbhavcopy running for the community.

So then why is it being treated as ...

First of all I would like to apologise all the members of Getbhavcopy community for the delays caused in addressing your issues. I have been really very busy these days with my office work that I am unable to dedicate any time to address your woes.

Saying that, I am really impressed with the way community members are coming together to help each other out. I never expected Getbhavcopy to become so popular.

Mr. MurthyMSR (who has been a long time supporter) ...
