They are all likely exactly the same, just saved in different versions of LabVIEW.  If you are using LabVIEW 2018 or newer, then download the 2018 version of the driver.  You can mass compile the driver to a newer version.

Hi crossrulz

 

Downloaded 2018 version. Thank you. It may help in the future but I am still not able to detect the Keysight GPIB 82357B hardware on the VI panels!!

 

Regards

I never had much luck with Keysight GPIB controllers.  You might have to go into the VISA settings and turn on Tulip support or possibly some other support.  This is somewhere in MAX if you look under the "Software" section of the tree.

Hi Albert

 

Yes totally agree. The panel looks really good. Still my problem is no GPIB connected in VI panel! 

Any luck with codes that I can try using VISA. Test Panel

 

Both have a good weekend. 
Not back in office until next Wednesday 10th.

If you run MAX do you see the instrument?

Hi Albert

 

The instrument is not actually "seen" as it is old and does not respond to *IDN? command. I can see the GPIB interface no problem and able to send commands and receive data. I have used the VISA options on the VI panel to communicate with the instrument but I also now have a 2018 driver for the EIP575 that I can use also.

 

I will just mention that the Keysight Technical department have also been a great help in solving my issues.

 

Thanks again

 

Trevor
