Issue Details

I couldn’t connect the Agilent 34972A with the DAQ Assistant in LabVIEW, as I always get this message: "No supported devices found". Why is this occurring, although I downloaded its corresponding driver from: "Help --> Find Instrument Drivers" ?

Solution

The issue here is that DAQ Assistant does not support third-party data acquisition products; DAQ Assistant only supports NI products. Hence, for the Agilent 34972A, a unique API for this product is used within LabVIEW (instead of DAQ Assistant) to perform the desired tasks. Here is an example of what the Agilent 34972A API should look like after installing the driver and clicking on "Open Palette".
