Picoscop 4424 can not connect under Win7 64bit

Post by skyliang » Thu Apr 24, 2014 2:28 am

Hi,

I have the picoscope 4424 for testing job, now one problem was happened for the connection between this device to PC. Before my computer is winXP system, no any issue for the connection, but now the system has updated to the Win7 64bit, the issue was happen.

Details:
1. Updated the picoscope6 to latest version under Win7 64bit system.

2. Like worked in WinXP, I have connected the USB cable to the computer, and install the drivers, in device manager I can find the hardware PC oscilloscope 4000.

3. Then I open the software picoscope6, but the software can not find the device, and in device manager the hardware PC oscilloscope 4000 was disappearred, meanwhile a new software appear but names "unknown device".

4. unplug and replug the cable one time, then search the device in picoscope6, I can find the device and choose it, but no any action after, "unknown device" will appear again.

Please tell and help me what root reason for this issue, how I can solve it, many thanks.

Sky Liang

Which version of the Picoscope 6 software are you using ?
Help->About and post the text from the box

How long have you had the 4424 scope ?
If you post the serial number of the device, the number underneath the bar code, we will be able to work it out.

Exactly the same computer, only the newer Windows?
If not, maybe try: other USB cable, other USB port, USB hub with external power supply?

Can you confirm that it was R6.8.11.20 that worked on the previous PC ?

If not and you still have a working version please check Help->About, and send the text to support@picotech.com

Hi Martyn,

I have tested on two PC, one is XP 32bit system, another is Win7 64bit, both are using the R6.8.11.20, On XP condition is no problem, but on Win7 64bit it can not able to connect.

Is it any issue from USB? Now I use the cable is USB2.0 with Picoscop, but the PC under Win7 USB is 3.0, is the issue from here?

Are you using the same blue cable with both systems ?

On the Windows 7 PC can you navigate to

C:\Users\YourLoginname\AppData\Local\Pico Technology\

and send me the files from the long alphanumeric named folders you find there. Please send these to support@picotech.com

Martyn can better advise than me on this, but the trace file extract has mention of files from PicoScope automotive.

The PicoScope 4424 is not an automotive scope so will not work with the automotive software. If when you start the software the splash screen says PicoScope Automotive then uninstall this and download standard PicoScope from this site (tab above).

I uninstall/remove (very old) Automotive software, but maybe it is Pico.Automotive.Waveforms.DLL (from "normal" software, not from Automotive), which locates these *.xml files? I think.
Or this answer was not for me?

Skyliang, This is likely to be the USB cable not providing sufficient power. Try other ones, especially the higher specification blue USB cable we provide with the units.

Aarne, Please contact support@picotech.com we have a test dll we would like you to try
