Two concerns running a 3424 Picoscope Ver.5.16.2 on Windows XP 2002 SP2:
1-we operate in XY mode for hours to days, and the app stops roughly once per 2 to 3 days. The application event log notes psw32.exe hangs. Nothing else plugged into USB;
Any idea of what might cause it to stop?
Shows Red "stop" and "running" in lower status bar. The red LED on scope box goes off. The displays get lost on some view screens - lost XY blob etc. won't restart by clicking GO, no other response so need to kill with task manager - often won't go away with that.
2-Some interaction with XY view screen and Scope screens with regards to time base changes, lose the XY while still getting scope traces. This is for long, 1sec/div or longer timing. Are they dependant on each other and which has precedence if so?
Thanks much, I like the way the 3424 works so far.
