Pipx40 and LabVIEW RT

The Pickering VISA driver, pipx40, is suitable for use with LabVIEW RT systems, here's how.

  • Install pipx40 normally onto the development system
  • Make sure that a copy of the pipx40 LabVIEW library is installed in the instr.lib folder of the LabVIEW installation
  • Transfer the Pickering Windows INF files to the RT system - this allows RT to recognize Pickering cards

  • Transfer a copy of the pipx40_32.dll to the RT system

Files to be copied to the remote RT system:

C:\Program Files\IVI Foundation\VISA\WinNT\pipx40\LabVIEW RT\*.inf
C:\Program Files\IVI Foundation\VISA\WinNT\bin\pipx40_32.dll
NOTE: On older installations the source files may be located in:
C:\VXIPNP\WinNT folder system
