Has Keithley already tested this under Windows 7 (32-bit)?
Has Keithley already tested this under Windows 7 (64-bit)?
What software installation instructions can Keithley provide (or suggest) for this configuration under Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit)?

We have not tested the port95nt.exe file in Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit nor do we offer support for those wishing to use it for Windows XP, Vista or 7. The program was written over 10 years ago when ISA-bus boards were still available. However, being that it is a 32-bit application, it is possible it may work in Win7 32-bit but we can not guarantee its operation.
I too have to upgrade a data acquisition application to a later version of Windows. In this case Windows 10 64 bit.
It seems that the driver for the KPCI-3160 board doesn't work in Win10 64. At least my experiments trying to use it in a VB.Net application seem to say so.
So my question is:
Is there an alternative to the KPCI-3160 board that would work in Win10 64 bit with .NET and be plug compatible with the KPCI-3160? I really don't want to have to replace the relay board as well because that will be very disruptive to the end user and make it difficult to revert to the current system (an old 32 bit XP machine with a KPCI-3160 and a Keithley-CEC IEEE card).
Ideally the alternative would connect to the PC via USB.
I'd be grateful for any help, including suggestions as to where I might better ask the question.
