Determining GPIB Driver Version

Highlighted
I am trying to determine the version of the GPIB driver that is installed on
a Windows PC. What is the suggested way of doing this? I notice there is
version information in the Windows registry.

Thanks,

Related to my question below, how can I determine the type of GPIB card
installed? Again, I see settings in the registry for "Interface Type",
which looks like it defines the type of GPIB card. How can I translate the
value in the registry to a textual description of the GPIB interface card?
Am I failing to see an API that provides the information I want? Perhaps NI
could add some APIs if they aren't in the current version of the NI488.2
driver.

Thanks,
Neal Stublen

If it is sure that an NI-GPIB is installed, you can check
HKLM\Software\National Instruments\NI-488.2M registry entry.

But difficut to find out the board name from the registry i think.
