Cannot run samples from SDK; 64 bit Labview, and Windows

Post by aasgreen » Thu Jan 09, 2014 4:18 pm

Hey there!

I'm having some trouble getting my Picoscope 4226 up and running with Labview. I've downloaded the sdk (ps4000sdk_r10_5_0_28), but when I try to run the sample programs I get the an error telling me that the program can't find the PicoScope4000Open.vi, PicoScope4000Settings.vi, and PicoScope4000GetBlock.vi can't be found.

I've already followed the labview guide (moving the ps4000.dll and ps4000wrap.dll to the current directory and the local user.lib folder), but I can't seem to get it to work.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Are you using the 64bit dll's ?

Thanks for your prompt reply, Martyn.

I am using the libraries from inside the x64 folder, which I assumed referred to the 64 bit version.

That would be the correct location for the libraries. You will also need to make sure you have installed the 64bit kernel drivers which can be found in system\amd64
