VRF - errors using panel drivers in VEE 4.01

Question asked by VRFuser on Nov 18, 1997

VRF

I have a HPE 1300A Mainframe set up as in the printout from VIC below connected to an HP82340 HPIB card.
It appears to be running fine. I have also installed VXI plug n play drivers for this system.
I can run the stand alone PnP panels and control the switches correctly.

In HP VEE however, when I go to place a panel driver I get error 2000 (invalid card in Switchbox) and or 800 timeout errors.
In the 'Advanced driver configuration' dialog for each instrument I have the appropriate ID filename and sub address.
i.e.     hpe1345a.cid      sub addr 112
     hpe1364a.cid     sub addr 120

I can refresh each card and the icon changes to the 'connected to computer' icon.

I have changed the names and description for each to the appropiate SwitchBox1 or SwitchBox2.

What am I missing to get the panel drivers configured correctly?

Thanks
