I have installed LabVIEW on the 80804B oscilloscope and I am trying to use its GPIB port to communicate woth LabVIEW to control some other devices like power supplies etc.
However, the VISA (both Agilent and NI) do not show the device. I tried updating the Agilent I/O libraries to version 16.2.
Agilent connection expert doesn't show up the GPIB card itself even though it shows up in device manager.
Where do the cal file and license file live on my 54850 Series & 80000A/B Series oscilloscope?
C:\scope\cal\framecal.dat <- it is usually best to grab the whole folder
You may have to select “view hidden files and folders” in folder options to view these files.
