i am getting an error "Unable to open orderbook. Override Menu to fix". Pls guide me
Nest needs to be customized for every broker, i have provided the infra but sorry i cannot look at every user's config. If you can code look at Now.ahk/Nest.ahk and check what needs to be changed.
I use NOW, It has better chance of working as its same for all.

Sir i am facing the same error (unable to open orderbook. override menu to fix) when i try with NOW 1.13.3.5. I have matched the NOW header with same order too. But getting this error.
dunno, make sure you are running NOW as normal user without admin rights.
And make sure to run orderman using orderman.bat

Yes i am running like that only sir
This is the line to open orderbook
Code:
WinMenuSelectItem, %TITLE_NOW%,, % menus[1], % menus[2]                    // open orderbook
WinWait, % controlObj.ORDER_BOOK_TITLE,,5
So there are 3 things
1) TITLE_NOW - Below works for me on NOW 1.13.3.5. Using part of the text is ok
WindowTitle = NOW 1.13

2) Menu - Below works for me. Look at NOW.ahk
static ORDER_BOOK_MENU := "Orders and Trades,Order Book"

3) Orderbook window title. Below works for me. Look at NOW.ahk
static ORDER_BOOK_TITLE := "Order Book -"

Compare each with what you see in NOW.
What is your NOW version number? In new Nest there was some change that made accessing menu not work. Maybe new NOW has it too ..

Edit - Also as a workaround you can try to open orderbook once before starting Orderman. If the window title is ok, orderman will pick it up.

Test on NOW. I see your version is same, it should work.

For Nest we have to check everything and see what changed - which i wont do.
For buy sell there is option to use hotkey instead of menu - try that
Code:
# Use F1/F2 hotkeys to create order instead of using Menus
CreateOrderUseHK = false

Yes sir. I feel this line of selecting buy/Sell window is the problem in both nest and NOW. the above lines are not fetching the Buy/sell window
