why not PicoScope 6 Beta window Pop out, if calling openUnit

Post by pythonMe » Mon Feb 12, 2018 5:20 am

Hi,
I am new to API programming. I tried "PS3000aV2_x64.xlsm" in PicoSDK\PS3000A\Excel\
it is able to collect data from Pico, but the PicoScope 6 Beta window didn't pop out. Do you know how can I open "PicoScope 6 Beta" application by using Excel VBA?

Pico: 3206DMSO
windows: 7 enterprise
Excel: 2010

The excel example is code to show you how to setup and collect data directly in Excel using the API, without the need to use our PicoScope 6 application.

Any graphing or processing of the collected data needs to be handled within Excel, you can't use the PicoScope application for this.

Thanks for your reply.
Is there any way of editing "*.pssettings" files? For example, I have 50 different settings to be load to PicoScope 6 Beta. Is there any way of editing 50 .pssettings file in a bundle?

Settings files are only usable/editable from within the PicoScope 6 software. If you email support@picotech.com with more details on exactly what you are trying to do hopefully the team will be able to assist you with a solution.
