PicoScope 3206D starting LV problem

Post by Yury » Wed Jul 13, 2016 1:11 pm

Hello. I need help with my problem. When I run the example in LabView error occurs "Unable to open PicoScope".

PicoScope 3206D
LabView 15.0 32bit
All needed dll's copied to LabView/resource directory.
PC restarted several times. Oscilloscope working perfectly with PicoScope 6.
Examples started by me from C:\Program Files\Pico Technology\SDK\src\PS3000\Labview.
If I start examples from C:\Program Files\Pico Technology\SDK\src\PS3000A\Labview (32 or 64, doesnt matter), then I got message that my 3206D not found (PICO_NOT_FOUND).
In both situations I tried to start PicoScope3000ExampleBlock/PicoScope3000aExampleBlock.
About PC: Core i7, Win7 x64, 8 Gb DDR3, USB 3.0, etc.
I hope i didnt forgot anything.

Please help! Thanks!

Check if the SDK installer added a directory C:\PicoSDK with the examples in, if so try running the examples from there, if not copy the examples to your normal LabVIEW applications directory, it may be folder permissions causing the issue.

Are you plugged into a USB2 or USB3 port?

Is the PicoScope application still running when you try to run the LabVIEW application?
