      Hi guys,
      I’m still using ver 9.2 and thinking of upgrading. I mostly use HTB on Win XP machines, but do some writing/debugging on Win 7 or 10.

      HTB 2021 says it is for Win 7 thru 11.

      What was the last version whose features are supported across XP thru 10?

      TIA

        Version 10.1 is the latest version to run on Windows XP. You can download a trial version to try out before purchasing.

          OK, thanks. But does it also work properly on Win 7 and 10? 9.2 has serious display issues with Win7.

          Also, has the large block data transfer via DDE liimitation been fixed with 10.1? I have to use a Techsoft binary to get it to work with 9.2 .

            Yes, it does work with Win 7 and 10. Not sure about your issue with the “DDE limitation”, but as noted, you can find out with the trial version.

              Transfers larger than 256 bytes got truncated.

              OK, one more question. Which is the last version that works with Win 98SE? Ver 9.2 does…

                Hi guys,
                I have installed the PCI 82350C card, but, it can’t communicate with the equipment, through the HtBasic.
                The configuration of the Agilente Expert is correct and detects the equipment,does not report any errors.
                Maybe the version of HPIBS is outdated for this board.
                I have HtBasic v9.0 installed and the operating system is Win XP Professional SP3.
                Can you help solve this difficulty?
                Many thanks.

                  Hi,
                  more information.
                  The exe file is Hpbasic.exe 06/08/2002, I think it is version 6.3, but I’m not sure, not version 9.
                  The HPIBS.DW6 06/08/2002.
                  Thanks.

                    You could try downloading HTBasic Trial version 10.1 to see if it works for you:

                        Good morning, Ralph,
                        thanks for the quick help. I tested with version 10 Demo and it works fine.
                        One more question, which is the better option to buy the HTBasic V10 or the HTbasic 2021 and upgrade to Win7?
                        Thanks.

                          If you are able to upgrade to Windows 7 or newer, it would be better to get HTBasic 2021 since version 10.1 is no longer being supported with updates to drivers and bug fixes.
