Running Multiple Versions on One PC

Post by Big 10 Inch » Mon Mar 30, 2009 8:24 pm

Can you run multiple versions of PicoScope on one PC? We have an older ADC-11 (that needs PicoScope 5) and a 2203 that runs on 6. Can we have both running and capturing at the same time?

If we purchase the parallel to USB adapter, can we use v6 for the ADC11 or are we still limited to v5?

Thanks!

Hi

It is possible to have both PicoScope 5 and PicoScope 6 installed.

The ADC11 will only work with PicoScope 5 and PicoLog, regardless of whether you use the USB parallel port.

Thanks for the quick reply, Robin.

Can I restate the question? I have both PicoScope v5 and v6 installed on my laptop for field use. I need to run the ADC-11 at the same time as the ADC-2203. Can the software (and pc) handle both applications triggering and capturing data at the same time?

Thanks in advance!

Hi

It's difficult to say. In theory, it should. It will depend on you PC, the other software you have running and how often you want to sample.

The best thing would be to give it a try
