vrf VISA Question

Question asked by VRFuser on Jan 17, 2005
If you do not have any VXI cages or any other VXI, use the agilent, only.
If you are using both VXI and GPIB you'll need the VISA, pick which one you
will use, but not both.

So first determine what you really need.

Subject: [vrf] VISA Question

I'm in the middle of my test program and I ran into an issue that I can't
figure out.  I'm using a National GPIB card in my PC, and I was using the
Agilent VISA drivers.  My PC has stopped communicating with my test
equipment. I started the NI program MAX, and I cannot scan for instruments.
When I click on interfaces, I see a notification for a VISA error.  I called
NI, and they tell me to re-load the NI VISA drivers over the Agilent VISA
drivers.

>From what I remember from a few years ago, there was some kind of an issue
when using both VISA drivers. The NI software will copy the Agilent VISA as
another name.  I guess my question is, should I use the NI VISA or Agilent
VISA with VEE?

I uninstalled all of the NI software and hardware, the Agilent IO libraries,
and reinstalled everything, and I still have the same problem.

On Monday,  I'll see if I can find another PC to check my card in, or try to
find another card for my PC.  Any ideas?


Thanks
