I need the interface software if it exists.
The cheapest solution I know is the GPIB toolkit from John Miles (KE5FX).
KE5FX GPIB Toolkit
That software is free. It has a program vna.exe, which can read an 8753 and save as Touchstone files. It can also emulate a plotter, so you can probably plot to it too.
Keysight's Vee will have a driver for an 8753, as will Labview, and I expect MATLAB too. But all those cost quite a bit of money.
I wrote my own software from scratch, but I have only ever compiled it on a Sun workstation with a SPARC proocessor running Solaris. At some point I need to move that to a Linux box.
Personally I am no fan of Windows, so use it as little as possible.

Thank-you for the information! We greatly appreciate the help.
