Agilent 33210a output disabled in remote use

I am trying to use this instrument driver (2018 version) with labview 2019 to make an agilent 33210a function generator to output a triangle wave. The problem is that every time I run the VI (which runs without errors) the function generator displays "output off" and no signal comes out. Some relevant information is that when I launch the vi labview returns the following warning message:warning_message.JPG

I think that this means labview can't find the necessary files for startup from the instrument library, but I don't know where those would be since they aren't in the instrument driver folder I downloaded.

Those drivers were written to be in the <LabVIEW>\instr.lib\Agilent 33XXX Series folder.  You seem to be cross-linking your drivers as well.  So put the files for this driver where it belongs and try again.

Firstly, the Agilent 33xxx Series folder belongs in your LabVIEW xxxx/instr.lib folder.  It may just start working if you do that.


EDIT: Guess I was a bit tardy.  😉
