3205b not detected in faststreaming example c++

Post by msmirb » Tue Nov 22, 2011 1:45 am

Hi,
I have a new Pico 3205b. I am running VS2008 c++ on Win7-64. It compiles OK and GUI looks OK, but when I select OpenDevice on menu the gHandle= ps3000_open_unit() returns 0. I have plugged and unplugged the CRO and it works OK in the Pico Oscilloscope software. I have 25 years real time programming experience so I admit I don't really understand plug and pray.

The 3000a/b range of scopes are different to the older 3000 range and use a completely different dll which provides more functionality and error reporting. You will need to download the sdk from http://www.picotech.com/software.html
selecting 3205b at step 1 and the sdk at step 2.
