Hello Stuart M,

Same issue here with our KUSB-488B (connected to a SourceMetter 2401) on Windows 10 (OS restriction, we can't downgrade to window 7 unfortunately).
Is it possible to have access to the beta to test if it will solve our problem?

Best regards,
Raph

Kusb-488B cannot run with the driver KI-488_v3.13.1_KI-488-3.13.1 in Windows 10 Pro 64 bit.
”KI-488 Diagnostic Tool” doesn't start. It shows the message: ”Run-time error 48 IEEE_32M.dll file not found” when start initialization for address 21.
When start ”KI-488 Configuration Utility” the message is ”the application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)”. :(

The driver that I used was KI-488_v3.13.1_KI-488-3.13.1 and I tried both the NI Command Compatible Driver and the Keithley Command Compatible Driver. After installation, OS Windows 10 Pro Ver 1809 64-bit does not show that there is any problem with the driver - in Device manager it's Ok and Keithley Loader appears in the Devices.
However, as we said, the KI-488 Diagnostic Tool and KI-488 Configuration Utility do not work, indicating that something is wrong. The "Async Read Write Static" or "Change GPIB Address" examples do not work, and the same message "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)" appears, although I copied them to their folder the file gpib-32.dll.
