2011-10-01 1.4 Expand for more information...

The header file visatype.h was not being installed into "Win64\Include" subdirectory. The header file visa.h was missing the definition for VI_INTF_USB. A device that claimed to be compliant with USB-TMC but had an incorrect interrupt pipe configuration could cause ausbtmc.sys to blue-screen. Various fixes to viWaitOnEvent in Win64 shared version of visa64.dll. The VISA COM interfaces IRegister64, ISharedRegister64, IHislipInstr and IPxi were not being properly registered. Updated binaries from Visual Studio 2005 to 2008 and changed the runtime version that is included in the installer.
