This utility has been built to try to help make your life easier fetching data from Tektronix Oscilloscopes, including Windows based oscilloscopes and the new 5 Series MSO oscilloscopes.

This software is labeled beta as it has not had widespread testing so I do anticipate users finding bugs. If you encounter any bugs while using this software or just want to provide feedback, please post it in this thread as this will be the official place for these things.

Please note that this is free software and falls under the Tektronix Free Software Download Agreement. This means this is not a Tektronix supported piece of software. I am purely providing this software to you to try to make your lives easier.
