LabVIEW examples for PicoScope 2000A/B & MSO models

Post by Hitesh » Thu Jan 05, 2017 11:28 am


Customers using the PicoSDK version may find that the PICO_NOT_FOUND status code is displayed when trying to connect to one of the following PicoScope 2000 Series models with the examples from the C:\PicoSDK\PS2000A\Labview folder:
  • PicoScope 2405A
  • PicoScope 2205A MSO
  • PicoScope 2206/7/8B
  • PicoScope 2406/7/8B
  • PicoScope 2206/7/8B MSO
This is due to the drivers installed as part of PicoSDK being released prior to the launch of the above products.

Update: Please see this post for information on where to obtain LabVIEW examples for Pico Technology products.

Update 2:The steps below can be ignored if PicoSDK or later is installed as these have the correct drivers.

To obtain drivers install the PicoSDK as normal and undertake the following:-

32-bit drivers:

1. Download the latest stable version of PicoScope from our Downloads page
2. On a 64-bit operating system, copy the Ps2000a.dll (rename it to ps2000a.dll) and the PicoIpp.dll (rename to picoipp.dll) from the

C:\Program Files (x86)\Pico Technology\PicoScope6 directory

to the

C:\Program Files (x86)\Pico Technology\SDK\lib directory

(on a 32-bit operating system this will be C:\Program Files\Pico Technology\PicoScope6 to C:\Program Files\Pico Technology\SDK\lib)

64-bit drivers:
