Hi Marvin,

Our postsales WWW page has much to say about
the HP E2075 GPIO card, including:

  1: Note that VEE only supports access to the GPIO card in a
  fixed configuration (one appropriate for communicating with
  the 3852 data acquisition box's 44702 fast DMM). If you try to
  simply blast bits out of it to a device, it won't handshake
  and VEE will time out.

  To allow it to auto-handshake, you have to either wire PFLAG
  back to PCTL through an external hardware inverter -- or short
  PFLAG to PCTL (pin 19 to 44) and check the "PFLAG: Hi = Ready"
  box in the E2075 configuration of the IO Config program.

You say you "have not been successful".  Please provide more detail?

I have had success with VEE 4.01 for Windows and Direct I/O objects with
syntax lines like:

Here is the June-19-2000 VP6 Press Release:
"Agilent Technologies Introduces VEE Pro 6.0 with MATLAB(R) Script From the
Mathworks for Easy-To-Use Measurement-Specific Graphical Programming": ... 66004.html

One customer complained that he had trouble downloading the E2120G Agilent
VEE Pro 6.0 for Windows 95/98/NT/2000 Evaluation InstallShield archive file
(~34 Mb) from the data sheet page ... 2120G.html ,
so I copied that big veeeval60.exe file to near the top of one of our
postsales pages: ... index.html
Now customers have 2 pages to try downloading from.

Hope this helps!
