GPIB Response times of Agilent 8163A

We have an old Aiglent 8163A Power Sensor module.

We programmed an computer application which connects via GPIB to the device and reads the values. (Written in C++ on Windows). This works in principle. However only in debug mode. In release mode we get most of the time only "0" values back from the device.

Does this have anything to do with possible response times in the device? That what I thought because the release version should be faster, but maybe it is something totally different. Anyway I would like this nasty problem to be solved.
