I am running PClab2000se 3.1 on Windows XP SP3 logged in as administrator and trying to connect to a PCS500 scope on LPT1 with an address of 378.
The problem is when I start up the software it gives me the “no hardware response” dialog but the power LED comes on and when I close the program it turns off, so it is talking to the scope. If I click “run” it will read the scope. When the program is reading from the scope there is quite a bit of noise, 2.5Vpp and other other times it is a straight line with a DC offset of -7V. I have tried to calibrate it but it just returns the same “no hardware response” dialog error so I can not calibrate it.
I also have tired uninstalling, deleting the program files folder, deleting the .ini file, deleting the DriverLINX driver from device manager and reinstalling it. I have tried powering the scope with a bench power supply.
Why if the software is talking to the scope am I getting the “no hardware response” dialog?
