vrf VEE with Nat'l VISA

Question asked by gregg.drwho8 on Feb 9, 2006
Hello from Gregg C Levine
Jay, in the message there, you mentioned, "If you wanted to use VISA
on a pure NI system, we did write a generalized I/O plug&play driver
that I think is still available."

Can you point me in that direction? While I very rarely have a use for
the NI methods of I/O for testing my many projects, I prefer VEE's
methods, within the next few weeks I shall be heading down that path.
