Introducing the LabVIEW 7.0/7.1 Driver for the Agilent L4400 Series Modules
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
The instrument driver provides access to the functionality of
the Agilent L4400 Series Modules from National Instruments LabVIEW software.


Supported Instruments
---------------------
Module:
L4421A
L4433A
L4437A
L4445A
L4450A
L4451A

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:

\LabVIEW 7.0\instr.lib\agl44xx\
