-------------------------------------------------------
The instrument driver provides access to the functionality of
the Agilent 34405A from National Instruments LabVIEW software.


Supported Instruments

Installation
-------------
Run the self-extracting ".exe" and verify that the default path is correct for
your \instr.lib directory for LabVIEW. Then click Unzip to complete the installation.
Note. The default path (C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 7.1\instr.lib)
assumes that you have LabVIEW 7.1. If you have LabVIEW 7.0, you will need to change
the path name in the window.

When the installation is complete, a directory structure similar to the following is
created:

\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 7.1\instr.lib\ag34405\

Examples (directory)
action_status.mnu
action_status_memory.mnu
