I am trying to connect a Agilent 34405A meter to my work laptop (HP Elitebook 8440p running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit) via a USB cable. I have installed Agilent IO Libraries 16.1. When I plug in the USB cable the drivers are installed and a USB Test and Measurement Device (IVI) appears in the Device Manager. But when I run Agilent Connection Expert I get a commnuication failure (The instrument address check failed).

I have tried this on two other computers and it has worked fine, but I need to get it working with my work laptop.
