    Here is the function description, if that could help …

    PIPLX_CardId

    unsigned long PIPLX_CardId (long session, unsigned long cardNumber, char cardID[], unsigned long length);

    Purpose
    Obtains the identification string of the specified card. The string contains these elements:
    “model code;serial number;revision code”
    The <revision code> value represents the hardware version of the unit – cards have no firmware on-board.

    Parameters

    Session/ Type/ Description
    Input/ long /Handle of current session.

    cardNumber/ Type/ Description
    Input/ unsigned long/ Card number.

    length/ Type/ Description
    Input/ unsigned long/ Length of character string buffer.

    CardID/ Type/ Description
    Output/ char []/ Identification string of the specified card. The string contains these elements:
    “model code;serial number;revision code”
    The <revision code> value represents the hardware version of the unit – cards have no firmware on-board.

    Hi Corey,
    I like your method2, I will try immediately …

    The top method3) would be to create the complete file of the desired printer in the registry from a sript when launching HTBasic !

    Except this forum, it’s clear that HTBasic is very light on the support side … 🙁

    Maybe it’s the same question than drew, does somebody know how to choose the printer by software (without going manually through the Tools / Device Setup interface)?
    Is there something like that is existing ? : CONTROL 10,xxx; “HP Officejet Pro 8500”

    Very good idea.
    And some update on SYSTEM$(“VERSION:OS”) for the Windows 10 system could be great …
    Actually the response is “6.2 Windows NT”
    I found an alternative using “ProduKey” from NirSoft but a correction would be welcome

    Hi,

    Go to your Keysight Connection Expert manager and find your GPIB-USB interface …
    Note your SICL Interface ID : gpib0 for example
    Note your Logical Unit : 7

    And now with HTBasic try to load the SICL driver like this :
    LOAD BIN “HPIBS;DEV gpib0 ISC 7”

    Hello,
    As you know HTBasic cannot handle new computers with multi-core CPUs.
    This can slow down calculations or file storage enormously.
    The solution is to force the modification of the affinity so as to increase the processor number used during resource-intensive operations.
    On the other hand, during screen displays, it is better to keep the original affinity on single processor.
    To do this job I use the NirCmd freeware utility, to download here : https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html
    Please find bellow my code. Hope that help somebody …

    Hi Shuave,
    A video may be too heavy !
    Please find below the configuration screen copy for AGILENT 82357A USB/GPIB interface and a AGILENT 34401A multimeter
    And some code to test the connection after the HPIBS setting.
    (Be careful some old devices don’t respond to the *IDN? Syntax)

    Hi,
    you must load the GPIB USB driver like this (for example) : LOAD BIN “HPIBS;DEV gpib0 ISC 7”
    You can find the Keysight 82357B properties with the Keysight Connection Expert software scan
    SICL interface ID = gpib0
    Logical unit = 7

    Hi Uwe,
    Do you have seen in the code if some lines aren’t missing ?
    Your programming keys are probably on this syntax : ON KEY – LABEL “——–” GOTO —
    The command control Windows keyboard F1 to F8 (KEY 1 to 8)
    Normally all the programming keys are visible after a KEY LABELS ON command
    Write “KEY LABELS” in the help files to see some additional information

    Hi,
    As I remember there is a bug in the first 10.0 release version.
    You need the corrected version 10.0.2 for the Screen builder functionality
    Contact your vendor and ask him the free update of the software.

    Hi, do you have verify your Printer properties in the HTBasic toolbar ?
    Look at : Tools\Device Setup\WIN-PRNT\Properties

    Sorry I don’t really understand the question
    This is a problem in one of your program written with HPbasic?
    If yes, could you copy here the listing or the part of the listing of the program that doesn’t work?
