compatibility issue

I am using windows 8 and I have a Keithley 6517A meter. I am trying to
interface the both by downloading NI VISA. Currently I have tried VISA
version 17 and 18. However, I am still unable to interface the Keithley.
When I try to initialize KI GPIB by sending command *idn?, I get status as
8=timeout. Kindly suggest me a solution to this problem at the earliest.

Is Model 6517A set for GPIB? If so, what address?(default is 27).
Since you have NI-VISA, you should have NI-MAX.
Use NI-MIX to see if you can control the 6517A with *IDN?
