Which GPIB cards or interfaces are installed?
What version of GPIB driver?
What operating system?
What software program(s) are you running that seem to be running slow?
Device part number: KUSB-488B
Driver: Version 220.127.116.11 taken from the 3.12 driver disk
Operating system: Windows 7 64 bit
We are running a locally developed program
Have you ever run with more that one USB 488 device running on the same PC?
