For Vista 32bit/ XP 32bit/ 2K/ Server 2003

Use with ICS 488-LPCI, 488-USB, 488-USB2, 488-PXI and 1105 GPIB Controllers

There is some overlap between the 488.2V3 and the older 488.2 Driver. The 488.2V3 Driver is recommended for 488-USB and 1105 users as it fixes blue screen problems associated with the 488.2 Driver.

CAUTION: Do not use these drivers in systems with other companies' GPIB Controllers! It will over-write their GPIB-32.DLL.
