ADC-16 VB.NET and Win7 x64

Post by FarsideCow » Tue Mar 31, 2015 11:15 am

Hello,
I just came across a forgotten ADC-16 data logger unit with RS232 port in my lab. Since I use VB.NET on a windows 7 x64 machine to drive my instruments, I am curious to know if it is possible to drive this guy from a contemporary 64 bit system? I just want to hear a short answer, for I don't want to lose valuable hours fiddling just to find out it is not possible...
Thanks!

Hi FarsideCow,

If you use the 32-bit dll for the ADC-16 then it should be possible to use VB .NET to control the device.
