Issue Details

I downloaded the IVI driver for the Agilent N5770A DC Power Supply.
I tried writing a small code to just set a voltage Output value. The code runs without any errors but the instrument do not reflect updated voltage.
I can communicate with the Supply well via VISA using the specific drivers written for it. But IVI driver does not work.
Can I actually use this IVI driver with Agilent N5770A? If not,are there any other drivers available for this instrument?
