tektronix TDS5000 dataplugin

Highlighted
Hi all,
 
Anybody have any luck using the Tektronix_TDS5000 plugin?  It seems to be my end all to a problem posted here.  I am simply trying to read tek .wfm files with LabVIEW and from what I understand, the dataplugin should work regardless if diadem is present or not on your machine.  Note, I've also tried this from within DIAdem and still nothing.  I have registered the .uri (meaning downloaded to my machine and double clicked it) and tried using the example posted on the NI webpage and attached below for convenience.  Unfortunately, I can't attach a .wfm file to this post since it is not a supported file type according to the error I got trying to post this initially.  If someone feels frisky enough and would like a .wfm file I can provide via email.  Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
 
Thanks,
Drew

Hi Drew,

 

You must have hand handled this issue,  but I am posting workaround for future reference.

File converter is on the Tek web, see link below.
 TEKTRONIX WINDOWS OSCILLOSCOPE WFM CONVERTER

Calling this file converter exe file on LabVIEW like below, you can get txt file.
