Post by TMoabalobelo » Tue Nov 22, 2011 8:36 am

It looks as if it isn't picking up enPS6000ThresholdDirection which is defined in ps6000Api.h

Hi,
i managed to fix the errors, thanks. Now the code is executing fine, but then it fails to open the device. I get the following message on the output:
PS6000 driver example program
Version 1.1

opening the device...
handle: 0
Unable to open device
Error code: 3

Your help in this regard will be highly appreciated.

Thanks

It means the application/driver can't find the device and so is unable to open it. This may be because it has been opened by something else (Picoscope), the device isn't present (check device manager), or you are trying to open by serial number and the strings don't match.
