The USB drive file system needs to be FAT32 formatted.

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...

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

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. Anyone who has installed with this option needs to uninstall the driver and then reinstall it using the "Anyone who uses this computer option". The ...

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...

Re: Kickstart 2.0.3 can't find Keithley 2700

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 ...

Re: HELP! Keithley 2701 bricked after upgrading firmware to D05

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. For LabVIEW to work try to see if NI-VISA finds the instrument-- Open NI-VISA Interactive control. At the bottom of the window, enter the following in the Resourc...

Quite welcome.

If things work in NI-VISA Interactive control, they should also work with LabVIEW-32 bit.
GPIB1 or GPIB0 should both work with both products.
