Using Picoscope 6404D with 64 bit Matlab

Post by mdawkins » Thu Nov 06, 2014 10:27 am

Hi,

I have been using my Picoscope 6404D with Matlab 32 bit successfully for some time, but would now like to use with 64 bit Matlab 2014b.

I have installed Windows 7.1 SDK on my PC, and downloaded the SDK for the 6404D from the picoscope website. From this download I have copied the files in the x64 directory to a location on my Matlab path. I also found a new version of PS6000MFile.m on a thread in this forum which seemed to be for use with 64 bit Matlab.

I then tried

loadlibrary('ps6000.dll','PS6000MFile')

as I used to do previously

This time I got the error:

Error using loadlibrary (line 440)
The specified module could not be found.

Could you please advise what steps I need to take to successfully load the 64 bit version of the dll?

Thanks
Mark Dawkins

Hi Mark,

Please ensure that you have copied the 64-bit PicoIpp.dll to a location on your MATLAB path.

Hi Mark,

Do you have the ps6000_thunk_pcwin64.dll?
If not please email support@picotech.com and I will send you the correct files.

Please also let me know if you have the Instrument Control ToolBox.

Kind Regards,
