Just tried to install a Kusb-488B GPIB-usb adaptor on a Win7 system. Need to use labview and matlab for controlling different instruments. I opted for the driver compatible for NI. Now it seems labview works fine with the Kusb-488B but matlab does not. When I try the gpib() function it pumps the error message: "cannot load the Keithley gpib interface, pls check if necessary driver has been installed".
I am aware of the 32-bit compatibility problem and the matlab 2015b used is a 32-bit version. Any suggestions how to install the driver so that labview and matlab can both work with Kusb-488B? NI gpib cards surely does not have such problems.

Attached is a quick .m file where I used a KUSB-488B.
Tried this. Didn't work. Says "cannot create VISA object. The required drivers may not be installed properly." Is there additional drivers to install, keithley or NI, to make VISA work?
Also tried GPIB command with NI as vendor name. Didn't work either.
This is the version that is currently on my computer which was used to create the *idn? program.
