To use the NI-VISA drivers and both Keysight (HP Agilent) and NI GPIB devices, you will need to enable NIVISATulip.dll from MAX and NI 488.2 from within the Keysight (or Agilent) libraries.
Refer to Using Both NI GPIB and Keysight HPIB Controllers in the Same System to enable NIVISATulip.dll.
Refer to the following steps to enable NI 488.2 based on the Connection Expert Version you have.
Note: During Version 17.x, the software name changed from Agilent Connection Expert to Keysight Connection Expert.
This method only applies to Keysight/Agilent/HP's IEEE 488 interface cards.If you are unable to communicate with your device and a VISA test panel in NI MAX fails, check the physical connections. If you are using a Keysight instrument with a NI GPIB-USB-HS, try adding a GPIB connector between the instrument and GPIB-USB-HS.If you still experience issues, please contact National Instruments Technical Support.
