I would like to use a PC as a GPIB talker/listener(non-controller) using
VEE 4.01. The PC's are WIN95 PC systems with HP 82341C GPIB cards. I have
successfully done this with a "C" program using the SICL drivers and the
old I/O CONFIG program but would like to do it in VEE. Has anyone done this
with VEE 4.01? I have been unable to find a way in VEE to disable the GPIB
controller function.

Thanks in advance,

(1) make sure that you have the latest _WIN95_ drivers from NI.
You can download them if needed.

(2) Install the drivers as noted in the install instaructions. This
not Plug and Play.

(3) I woudln't expect I/O Config to recognize it since the NI card
doesn't use SICL (I don't think).

(4) when you get into VEE remember that the NI card will be at SC
rather than the _7_ you might normally expect. In fact if you go into
VEE and try 14 you might already be installed correctly. Try
"refresh" on "my configuration" in the Instrument Manager and see
if the card is found.

>From my own experience, the NI card is a pain to get configured
right, but it works very nicely and reliably.
