I'm using a piece of hardware that has it's driver executable written in LABView. I would like to interact with it from the inside of my own VI. There's no dedicated LABView driver and I don't have access to the source code. Communication happens over USB. The particular functionality that I need is changing one numeric control, which governs the current that's provided.
Could someone help me with this in any way?
If that matters, I'm using LV2013.

Unfortunately there's no manual beyond basic set-up instructions, I have no idea how this application was compiled or if it even uses VISA and the original vendor is out of contact. The hardware in question was bought by my university a few years ago from a third-party and came with just a datasheet, set-up instruction and the driver.
I did think about using AutoHotkey but I have no experience at all with interacting with third-party apps from LABView, could you point me in the right direction?
