Installing and configuring software for ADC11

Post by benxyp09 » Thu Jun 16, 2016 10:27 am

Hi guys,

I am trying to install and configure PicoScope and PicoLogg Recorder for an pico ADC-11.
I have followed the instructions from the ADC-11/ADC-20 user guide (I have also copied the adc1132.dll file as specified in chap. 3.2 of the manual) [filename: adc11-en-2.pdf] and installed PicoScope and PicoLog Recorder which I have downloaded from (Discontinued Products -> ADC-11 -> software). I have also installed the drivers (a .rar file) for ADC-11 from (Data Loggers -> ADC-11 -> Recourses).
Inside the .rar file there is a PICOreadme.txt file which gives further instruction on how to install the drivers.

Following the steps I have done the following:
1) USB drivers
Copy picopp.inf to \inf
Copy picopp.sys to \system32\drivers
Plug the device in and follow the new hardware wizard.

2) Parallel port drivers
Copy pico.sys to \system32\drivers
use regdrive with the pico option to install the driver service:
c:\> regdrive.exe pico

When running Picosocpe I get this message: "the file adc1132.dll failed to load correctly"
When connecting ADC-11 to my computers USB port the drives fail to install and my ADC-11 is not recognized neither by PicoScope nor PicoLog Recorder.

I am running Windows 7 professional, service pack 1.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Hi benxyp09,

If your Windows 7 operating system is a 64-bit version then the ADC-11 will not work and you will need a 32-bit operating system.

When you installed the PicoLog Recorder software, was the adc1132.dll file present in the installation directory?
