If those steps do not work, I recommend creating a new forum post instead of posting to an old thread.  This will increase the amount of traffic you get across your post.

Hi @Pankaj,

Thanks for sharing. It happened to me with 2 ghost GPIB instruments detected with no physical / hardware connection. After running the "VISA Find Resource" function in LabVIEW, it resets the instrument detection, thus automatically deleting them. Thanks much.
