Model 6487 can be controlled via RS-232.
There are no example programs in C# on the KI site.
The IVI driver on the site for the 6487 has C and C++ examples. Maybe that would help?
Here is the link to the driver.

Three basic things.
1. Model 6487 must be set for RS-232 operation.
2. Use a straight through serial cable. Do not use a NULL Modem cable.
3. Match the Serial parameters of the 6487 (BAUD Rate, Flow Control, terminator and so on) to the com port on the computer.
