PicoScope 3204B

Post by Yutaka Igarashi » Wed Mar 07, 2012 1:37 pm

Dear all ,

I am a Japanese guy and I bought PicoScope 3204B on 2nd March this year .
This is a nice instrument and I enjoy trying many functions with picoscope 6 !!!

Then I got PS3000asdk_r10_4_1_1.zip and try ps3000a.xls .
But although there is a ps3000aWrap.dll in the same directory as ps3000a.xls , it does not seems to find ps3000aWrap.dll .

I tried to put ps3000a.dll , ps3000aWrap.dll and PicoIpp.dll into c:\windows\system32 directory but the phenomena is the same .

Would anyone have the same trouble as me ?
What would be a way to let ps3000a.xls to recognize ps3000aWrap.dll ?

Best Regards

Hi Yutaka,

You will need to explicitly define the location of your ps3000aWrap.dll file in the relevant function declarations e.g.:

Code: Select all

Declare Function SetTriggerProperties Lib "C:\PS3000asdk_r10_4_1_1\ps3000aWrap.dll" (ByVal handle As Integer, triggerChannelPropertiesArray As Long, ByVal nProperties As Integer, ByVal auxEnable As Integer, ByVal autoTrig As Long) As Integer
You may also need to install the latest Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable.

Hope this helps.
