I noticed that your program only has OUTPUT Statements.

My program works great, until I try to read a marker with my analyzer.

I can turn it on a peak signal and send the following commands.

OUTPUT Analyzer;”:CALC:MARK1:FCO:STAT ON”
OUTPUT Analyzer;”:CALC:MARK1:FUNC FCO”
OUTPUT Analyzer;”:CALC:MARK1:FCO:X?”;B ! This statement asks for data from the device

When I try to read the result with:
ENTER Analyzer;B
The program times out and give me an error: “168 in 2380 Device Timeout”

Traditionally I have used this procedure, it seems to no longer work with 10.2 or the new trial software.

Also, I noticed in a previous post in setting up the USB driver you had an ON ERROR statement
That program has an ENTER Statement, but the *IDN? never returns anything.
