PCANBasic.dll not functioning properly

Hello, I have been working with a CAN proyect in Labview 2015-32 bit version. The problem was that I could not send CAN signals to a fuel cell. After a couple days I solve it using the PCAN_write function with PCAN-USB.dll library. The problem is that, for the Data Adquisition Cards that I am using only work in LabView 2016, so I had to switch to this version, where I only have the 64-bit version. And now I cannot use the PCAN-USB library because it only works on a 32-bit version, and the PCANBasic library doesn't work properly when sending CAN signals.

Do anybody know where I can found the library I was using in a 64-bit version? 

Thanks in advance

LabVIEW 2016 32-bit will install right alongside LV 2016 64-bit and it will use the same license that LV 32-bit uses.  Just remember to reinstall all your drivers so they can become aware of a new LV.


Edit:

Be sure to explicitly open the LabVIEW.exe that you want to open.  e.g., even if you right-click on a VI and choose Open with... --> "LabVIEW 64-bit", it will open with the last version of LabVIEW that was opened.

I also suggest migrating to LabVIEW 32-bit.  You can contact the manufacturer of your hardware and ask them if they have a 64 bit binary, and API.  But PCAN hardware isn't really that popular, and then having them develop and maintain drivers for LabVIEW which also isn't that popular of a language, might mean they will never get to it.
