E3631 doesn't go into remote mode

Hi,

I am using an E3631A power supply and trying to program it using Matlab Instrument Control and GPIB interface.

The OS that I use is Windows 7 - 64.

I can set voltage/current limit for the instrument, and enable/disable output. However, the instrument's RMT light never comes on, and when I try to measure ('MEAS:CURR?') the current at terminals, it gives me error 550. However, this particular query works on Agilent Connection Expert (with Remote light on).

I tried using the same set of commands on another computer running on Windows XP (Matlab, GPIB), and it runs just fine.
