”KI-488 Diagnostic Tool” doesn't start. It shows the message: ”Run-time error 48 IEEE_32M.dll file not found” when start initialization for address 21.
When start ”KI-488 Configuration Utility” the message is ”the application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)”.
If this is not working, something is not correctly installed.
Has this system ever had a previous version of the KUSB-488B driver?
Does it have any other GPIB drivers installed? If so, then they need to be uninstalled.
Often this can occur when other products are installed.
For instance, open the control panel -> programs and features
and click on National Instruments Software, and then click on uninstall/change and
look at the list of drivers to see if NI-488.2 is listed. If there are NI-488.2 entries, they all need to be uninstalled and reboot.
I would then uninstall the Keithley KUSB-488B driver and search the entire hard drive for all copies of gpib-32.dll and delete them too.
Then, reboot and reinstall the KI-488 3.13.1 driver as NI Command Compatible. After the driver and reboot the computer then connect the KUSB-488B, allow it to connect the loader, then run the KI-488 Configuration Utility again.
Let me know your results in this posting...
That's why I called your support.
The computer I'm working on is new, but I tried to install the KUSB-488A interface that I had earlier.
It did not work and I found out that the software for it does not develop anymore. I uninstalled the driver at that time.
So, I bought the KUSB-488B.
Now, I have uninstalled all gpib drivers. I have deleted all the copies of the gpib-32.dll files that still existed in my developed softwares.
I checked Registry (regedit) and I do not have any gpiv-32 or KUSB keys.
I restarted the PC.
I installed KI-488_v3.13.1_KI-488-3.13.1 with the NI Command Compatible option - at the end of the installation I restarted the PC.
I connected the KUSB-488B interface.
I started the KI-488 Configuration Utility and the message "The code execution can not proceed because gpib-32.dll was not found" appears.
When I start the KI-488 Diagnostic Tool and press "Initialize KI GPIB" a window appears with the GPIB card address selection.
I left the default 21 address and I pressed OK. The error message "Run-time error '53' appeared. File not found IEEE_32M.dll "and the application closes.
I installed the same driver also on another computer that has Windows 10 Ver 1803 64-bit used for text editing only - no GPIB driver or something similar has ever been installed.
Behavior is the same (the same messages appear).

I am now seeing a problems with the other "Only for me" option.
Please uninstall and reinstall with the "Anyone who uses this computer option" while we debug the problem.
Also, are both your win 10 computers using build 1809?
So, I uninstalled the driver and reinstalled it with the "Anyone who uses this computer option" option.
At the end of the installation, I restarted the PC.
I connected the KUSB-488B interface to the computer.
The pleasant surprise was that the error messages were gone
when starting "KI-488 Configuration Utility" and "KI-488 Diagnostic Tool" applications.
In the attachment are the captures of these applications for the case
when KUSB-488B where connected to the computer and
without measuring device connected to the KUSB-488B - It seems OK now.
The computer we did all the tests is Windows 10 Ver 1809 64-bit.
The other computer used for editing is Windows 10 Ver 1803 64-bit.
I did the same with this computer. Behavior is the same.
It seems the problem is in the installer software.
We expect in the new driver version to be corrected.
Thank you very much for the technical support provided.

Glad we could get you up and running.
Until a new version of the driver is created, tested and released,
continue to use "Anyone who uses this computer option" to install the driver.
