VRf-NI_AT-GPIB-Help

Question asked by VRFuser on Nov 19, 1997
Repost of the question:

We have a old NI AT-GBIP card for PCs. It supports 488.2. We have the NI
drivers for it, Ver. 2.7.1, that support Win95. It includes files named
gpib.dll
gpib-16.dll
gpib-32.dll
that are installed correctly in the /windows/system directory.

The card works proper on our DX486/66, 16 MB RAM under Win95. It is
configured as GPIB0. It was tested with the NI hard- and software checks
and with the NI direct GPIB terminal program and our remote instr., a
Rhode&Schwartz Power Reflectometer Bridge at GPBI adr. 5.

In HP VEE 4.0 we created a I/O instrument at adress 1405 (14 = NI GPIB0,
05 = GPIB adr. of remote instr.) as described in NI/HP WWW support
sites. When we start the program, we get an error like following:
"Could not attach file gpib-32.dll"
"Please read inst. instr. and so on"
"Error # 716"
It doesn't matter if gpib-32.dll is deleted or copied to any other
directory we thought that VEE might look for it.

Any solution?
