Hello Barrie,

If you are using VEE 7.51, perhaps the latest patch would help. I saw an information from 7.52 patch file correcting what is says:

"27461 -- All GPIB adapters supported by SICL may show up twice in the instrument manager".

Regards.

Ronald

Same with me.
I sent this to agilent, and they know about it. But it is just a "cosmetic problem" so far. Just ignore the 14 and above...
If you want, you can also send this in the bug formular......

You're right - I do not have any NI software or hardware installed. And the hard discs were reformatted and only XP Pro SP2, Libraries and VEE loaded.
(All the GPIB cards are Agilent, some PCI and some USB/GPIB adapters)

Also - on some PC's the spurious GPIB14 appears inside VEE using Find Instruments, but not in the Agilent Connection Expert view....

------- Forwarded message follows
Just 14.2 has this special behavior...it is a "bug" ..will be changed i hope ;-) Normally 14 and 32 are adresses for NI instruments..
But as you do it on a clean XP, i do think you do not have NI on your compu..

So lets wait and see,
detlef

Hello Barrie,

You are using a GPIB interface from NI. Much about this had been discussed before and you may look at those past VRF postings for accurate answer. This is generally not a problem for as long you don't mix-up usage of instrument address from these two sets. What I usually do is stick on one set.

Regards.

Ronald

Just updated some pc's with a clean Windows XP install to VEE 7.51 + library14.2.

All work OK but now I see GPIB bus 7 with instruments (say 704, 712 etc) and another 'virtual?' set GPIB bus 14 with instruments 1404,1412 etc.

Simple question - Why?
