instrument drivers not from IDNet

I have an instrument driver for the Keithley 2450 that I downloaded from Tek.com

When I copy the folder to instr.lib,  I see this in LabVIEW.

Is this right?

Did I do something wrong?

No, that's all good.  That's the location in the palettes where other vendors can put their instrument drivers.

The reason I was asking is that the Agilent 34401 has the same file structure in instr.lib as the Keithley 2450, but the 34401's private VIs are not visible in the palette to the programmer.

That is because NI edited the menu files to hide the private functions and set icons for all of the subpalettes when they developed the Agilent driver.  Keithley did not do this.

Re: instrument drivers not from IDNet

Would you know where I can find out how troubleshoot a Yokogawa driver?

It consists of a LLB file and several  .mnu files

No matter what I do with the files eg move up/down directories, the VIs are not showing up.

Hi,

 

Next time better start a new thread.

You should download or request the AQ2201 drivers.
