Hi Devanand,


VXIplug&play Instrument Drivers ( http://www.hp.com/go/inst_drivers )
require a VISA I/O Library.

Problem: The old HP 82335B and 27209 HPIB interfaces do not support the
         VISA library.

Solutions: 1. Program the HP 34970 without VXIplug&play.

           2. Or, these newer PC HPIB interfaces do support the HP VISA
           library:
             HP 82341C (ISA):                Win95 & Win98 & WinNT 4.0
             HP 82341D (ISA, plug and play): Win95 & Win98
             HP 82350A (PCI):                Win95 & Win98 & WinNT 4.0


(The latest HP PC I/O Libraries are available on the WWW at
http://www.hp.com/go/iolib )


Hope this helps!
