Ps3000 Change power source error

Post by imi121 » Fri Oct 05, 2012 8:36 am

hi all,

I am using a Picoscope 3206B.
when i try to run the C example program i get this message "The procedure entry point _ps3000aChangePowerSource@8 could not be located in the dynamic linked library ps3000a.dll".

I have checked that this attribute is called from the ps3000a.lib, any views or help on this especially the pico technology team.

Also important point iam able to run the Picoscaope6 software and the c# example is also running without any problems that means the dll path is fine.

Hi Imran,

Which version of the SDK are you using and what is the version number of the dll that is being picked up by the console application?

Ensure that you are using the header files from the latest SDK and try copying the dll into the same directory as your executable file.
