64 bit PicoScope API

Post by blankers » Tue Apr 20, 2010 2:55 pm

I am trying to call the PicoScope API from a 64 bit Windows application. Unfortunately the API seems to only be available in 32 bit.

Is there a 64 bit (beta) API available? When will the 64 bit version be released?

Hi Laurens

Our drivers are all currently 32 bit and we currently have no plans to release 64-bit versions.

Are you still not planing to release a 64 bit version of your Picoscope SDK?

We started developing 64 bit measurement applications for side channel analysis. To integrate PicoTech Oscilloscopes we at least need a kind of x64 wrapper DLL that uses IPC to call the x86 DLL loaded by a surrogate process.
Do you know if such a wrapper already exists?

You can use the 32 bit dll's with a 64 bit O/S.

Put the dll's into the windows\sysWOW64 directory

The drivers work well for 32 bit applications running on a 64 bit Windows.

But my problem is that I am developing 64 bit applications. And it is neither possible to link 64 bit code with a 32 bit library nor to load 32 bit DLLs in a 64 bit application. Hence I need a 64 bit API or a workaround.
So I want to know if a 64 bit API will be released or somebody already developed a kind of 64 bit wrapper DLL??

We have no plans to release 64 bit drivers at this time.

+1 vote for 64-bit.
Right now we have to use a second 32-bit application which communicates with our 64-bit application via a socket. A 64-bit driver would save us a lot of hassle and time.

I vote for a 64 bit native DLL too! (For the Picoscope 6000 API)

one vote more for 64 bit. I am looking already for alternatives for the picoscope.

Is there an update to providing a 64 bit library?

Our software is all 64 bit, and integrating a 32 bit library is taking a step backwards. Don't mean to be blunt, you guys make a great product, just wondering if I should seek out other solutions.

Hi jbbles,

We are working towards providing 64-bit drivers but I am unable to provide any detailed information on timescales.

Which product are you using?

That's great news!! Our company currently uses the 2000 and 3000 level scopes.

Hi,

Is that a 320X or 3X0XA/B device?

Thanks,
