What are the Known Issues with Command Expert 1.1?

Known Issues
Issue Workaround/Notes
If a sequence connects to an instrument at an address of the form TCPIP0::address::5025::SOCKET, and the user generates MATLAB code for the sequence, the resulting MATLAB code will contain a line that calls visa('TCPIP0::address::5025::SOCKET'). This generated code will only work in MATLAB R2011b or above. Also, the generated code for a query on an instrument with ::SOCKET address can take 10 seconds, even for a simple query, when using Agilent VISA. Use the address form TCPIP0::address::inst0::INSTR instead of ::SOCKET addresses (the ::INSTR form will use VXI-11 instead of Socket 5025).
The Command Expert 1.1 installer will warn the user and halt the installation if the Windows Script Host is disabled on the user's PC. Download and run the Microsoft FixIt utility at http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9648765. This will enable the Windows Scripting Host, then you can run the Command Expert 1.1 installer.
If Internet Explorer 6 or below is installed, documentation for some commands will not display correctly in Command Expert Install Internet Explorer 7 or above
When installing Command Expert on a PC with Excel, the Excel Add-on will only be installed for the current user. No workaround. Only the current user at the time of the install will be able to use the Excel Add-on.
While installing Command Expert in 64-bit Windows 7, Windows sometimes displays a dialog box that says "This program may not have installed correctly." Click the Cancel button in the dialog box that says "This program may not have installed correctly". The Command Expert install will finish without issues.
Command Expert LabVIEW Add-on: after a reboot of your PC, the first time you drop a Sequence block, there is a long delay before the Command Expert window appears This delay only happens the first time (after a reboot) that you drop a Sequence block.
Command Expert does not work with the NVIDIA nView Desktop Manager. If the nView Desktop Manager is running when you launch Command Expert, Command Expert will not respond to any mouse clicks.

Disable nView when running Command Expert.

To disable the nView Desktop Manager:

  1. In the Control Panel, open the NVIDIA nView Desktop Manager.
  2. Navigate to the Desktop Management tab
  3. In the nView Desktop Manager group box, click Disable.
  4. Note that this can be done while Command Expert is running, and doing so will immediately restore full functionality to Command Expert.

To re-enable on the nView Desktop Manager:

  1. In the Control Panel, open the NVIDIA nView Desktop Manager.
  2. Navigate to the Desktop Management tab
  3. In the nView Desktop Manager group box, click Enable.
When in "streaming mode", the Infiniium 90000A :WAVeform:DATA? command returns streaming data. Command Expert only retrieves the first portion of the streaming data. No workaround
VISA C/C++ code generation for return values that are of the format String Program Data and contain whitespace is incorrect. The "%#s" format string that is generated will only read until the first whitespace character, not until the end of the quoted string. Change the format string to "%#t"
