I have HTBasic rev 21. Now there is an automatic search when you try to add a new device but nothing is found at the end of the procedure …
I tried to add manually the GPIBNI driver (gpib0) , but when I try the classic Idn? on my instrument (Keysight Analyzer) I have the error “Interface not present”
I can’t add manually the USBS driver because the Agilent I/O libraries aren’t installed

If you are using a Keysight instrument, then you need to use the HPIBS driver and you need to have installed the Keysight I/O libraries. The GPIBNI driver is for National Instruments devices. The new automatic search in HTBasic 21 is for LXI (LAN based) instruments.
I know that other users are successfully using the NI GPIB-USB-HS+ interface, though I don’t have any personal experience with it. But I do believe it is the Keysight instrument and not the USB to GPIB interface adaptor that requires the HPIBS driver. As you may know, HP became Agilent, and then Keysight. So there is a chain of software compatibility and even many model numbers are the same.
I confirme it’s possible to use NI interface (GPIBNI driver) with KEYSIGHT instruments
I used these configuration many time in the past but I will try to install KEYSIGHT VISA as Secondary and re-test …
I keep you inform
