34972A and Visual Studio 2010 - General

Hello everyone !

I would like to code a Visual Basic.NET program with Visual Studio 2010 on Windows 7, to send SCPI commands to my 34972A and read data via an USB connection.
I'm pretty new to communication with an instrument, and Im totally lost !
I've already installed (as suggested by a sympathic and comprehensive user) :
- Agilent I/O Suite 16.3 (Agilent Connection Expert)
- Agilent Command Expert 1.2

On both, the instrument is detected, the *IDN? command works, and I succesffully read values.
But when it comes to using sample programs, I'm having a hard time compiling them and using them.
I do not know what libraries/drivers/dll/COM to use and how to find and install them, and if I have to use VISA or IVI tools.
Can someone help me to find starting documentation ?

Thanks in advance,
Eric B.
