Re: Windows10 driver for KUSB-488B USB to GPIB

Try the following to resolve your situation -- Remove KUSB-488B USB GPIB adaptor from host’s desktop/laptop USB ports, then uninstall the 3.13.1 driver. With the KUSB-488B still disconnected reinstall the 3.13.1 driver. Then, connect the KUSB-488B and see if the loader loads correctly. If still havi...

Re: Windows10 driver for KUSB-488B USB to GPIB

Never seen this problem before.
Has this system ever had a gpib driver on it prior to this recent install problem?
Can you try installing 3.13.1 on a different computer?

Re: 2701 with 7700: Error "ICE2700_ATTR_FRONT_PANEL_LOCKOUT"

ExceLINX has been obsolete for quite a long time. I would highly recommend using KickStart with your 2701 for Data Logging with the new Auto Export feature enabled. The software comes with a free trial period so you can evaluate and compare... KickStart product Information page: https://www.tek.com/...

Re: visa32.dll is missing

If you really need to co-exist and use multiple visas on your system, then I would recommend installing and trying the new KickStart2. KickStart2 uses 64-bit NI-VISA for communication, so your specific problem should not apply. (Also, you do not need to uninstall KickStart1 to try KickStart2). KickS...

Based on feedback we have found a problem in the Keithley KPCI-488LPA/KUSB-488B v3.13.1 driver installer when installed using the "Only for me" option.

Re: KUSB-488B and Windows 10

The KI-488 Configuration Utility is the most important of the tools. If this is not working, something is not correctly installed. Has this system ever had a previous version of the KUSB-488B driver? Does it have any other GPIB drivers installed? If so, then they need to be uninstalled. Often this c...

KickStart 2 does some excellent graph features. To use KickStart 2 with Model 2700 you need to connect your instrument to the computer using GPIB (RS-232 communication is not supported). Here's how to get started -- Install a GPIB driver that matches your hardware. Connect your instrument to the pc ...

The model 2701 is not discover-able using mdns. If you can ping it (and also open its' webpage using the ip address) that's a good start.
