There is some overlap between the 488.2V4 Driver and the older 488.2V3 Driver on Windows XP and Vista operating systems. The 488.2V4 Driver is recommended for new installations and all Windows 7, 8 and 10 operating systems.

488.2V3 users on Vista (32bit) and XP (32bit)who are not experiencing problems do not have to upgrade to the 488.2V4 Driver.

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