Which DLLs do I really need?

Post by silmaril » Wed Oct 16, 2019 6:31 am

I am currently in the process of writing my own LabVIEW instrument driver for PicoScope 5000 series.
On the target machines, it should not be necessary to install the SDK, so I include the DLLs in my driver, which already works fine.

All functions that will be called are inside ps5000a.dll or ps5000aWrap.dll.
Will it suffice to include those two DLLs or do they need other DLLs from the lib directory to work?

You will nee picoipp.dll as well from the lib folder.

You will also need the files from the System folder located in the SDK installation directory, these are the lower level USB kernel drivers. Ideally your installer will run the dpinst.exe (Microsoft's driver package installer) located in the folder.
