Re: Error: offset and length must refer to a position in the string

Unfortunately the KickStart series 1 product (last version was 1.9.8) was obsoleted a few years ago. No further updates to this product are planned. The new KickStart series 2 (current version is 2.4.0) replaces KickStart series 1. It is fully supported and supports the 2400 series including the mod...

Re: recovering KickStart license after hard drive format

There are two possibilities to this situation -- (1) If you exited the KickStart license and checked it into Tek AMS before you formatted, then you can just check out another license. (2) if you just formatted the hard drive without first exiting the license, then you will need to contact Tek Suppor...

Re: Kickstart Crashing When Trying to Graph/Export

Hadi, I did examine your project and see the blank graphs for runs and 3 and 4. I also noticed that there is a present settings/run 7 which was not yet executed. Once you execute this run 7, I was able to go back to runs 3 and 4 and in the upper-right-hand side enable the three graph runs. The graph...

Re: Kickstart doesnt discover 2400 SMU

It looks like you have made progress and the driver is now seeing the interface and the 2400.
I would now try to open KickStart 2.2.1 and see if things are better.
Be sure to check if the instrument is hidden in the Shelved Instruments area too.

One way to correct is to be sure you have the latest gpib driver version 3.13.2. https://www.tek.com/accessory/ki-488/3-1-3-2 Even if you have the latest, uninstall and re-install and it can correct itself... Once reinstalled, run the KI-488 Configuration Utility to see if the instrument and interfa...
