I created the directory c:\temp.
I did 2 2-port ecals and named them acm_cs1 and acm_cs2 respectively.

I did see the cals in the selection box of the macro. But the macro just sits there after opening.

are you pointing to the console version of the macro? in other words if you perform "SYST:SHORT<n>:PATH?" query, where <n> is the macro number you picked, what do you get? in my example if I perform that query I get "C:\Program Files\Agilent\Network Analyzer\Applications\CharacterizeAdaptorConsole\AdaptorCharConsole.exe".

the none console version of the macro "CharacterizeAdaptor.exe" does not take any command line arguments and if your shortcut is pointing to it, then that is why it just pops up and sits there.

Mine is also pointed to C:\Program Files\Agilent\Network Analyzer\Applications\CharacterizeAdaptorConsole. I also opened a cmd box and changed directory to there and ran CharacterizeAdaptorConsole with the argument string both with and without full path names for the directories.

Finally I did a search on C drive for another instance of CharacterizeAdaptorConsole.exe. Didn't find any other instances. Is there any way to ensure that I have the correct version of CharacterizeAdaptorConsole?

thank you

in the command line window do the following:

AdaptorCharConsole.exe /?

and you should see something that starts like this:

AdaptorCharConsole application - Version: A.02.01 Revision Date: Aug 25, 2009
AdaptorCharConsole /help calset 1 name calset 2 name calset 1 port calset 2 port S2P filename PNA hostname Phase Pivot Save Revrs Flag S2P Data Format

if you have an older version, you can always download the latest from this site:

http://na.tm.agilent.com/pna/apps/applications.html

if this does not resolve the problem, then I am not sure what is going on. if you want, you can PM me your contact information and I can give you a call at a mutually convenient time.
