KickStart currently supports GPIB, USB, LAN connections to a variety of instruments.
(see release notes for full list of instruments..)

Re: Keithley communicator throws error

I don't see a LabVIEW driver for the model 6485. So before writing your own code, I would first try KickStart 2 (comes with a 60-day trial) and connect your 6485 using GPIB. KickStart support 6485 DC Current measurements and collects data and graphs the results. Download can be found here: https://w...

Glad you got back to having the driver installed. (No easy way to resolve your previous problem). Good news is that there is problem with the driver. Only NI gpib cards will appear in NI Max, so no action is needed. Verify Driver using KI-488 Configuration Utility Connect your KUSB-488 to the pc and...

Re: Configuring CEC pci 488 card with Kickstart 1.9.8

There are several legacy versions of the CEC-488 driver - (see list below). I would start with version 8.3 and see if this works for you. Once installed you will need to need to open NI-Max to check the VISA passports. Either the NI-VISA passport for GPIB or the KEVICec Visa Passport will work...tur...

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/...

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...
