troubles with LabVIEW and the SR830 Lock-in Amp.

Highlighted
i'm quite new to LabVIEW and am trying to use the sr830 instrument drivers
to control the Lock-in from a computer, but the instrument drivers don't
seem to want to send or recieve any data. if anyone who is more proficient
in VI programming couild help me out with this, i would greatly appreciate
a response. thanks.

Are you using the instrument driver downloaded from Nat Inst ??

If you are this thing looks terrible, but should work.
You could try building a simple VI to see if all the communication is working
properly.

Check to make sure you have the correct GPIB address and that all the cables
cards etc are properly connected and working.
