DLL's for Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 Express

Post by KAndreas » Thu Dec 06, 2018 8:51 am

Hello,

we are planning to buy a PicoScope, for this i try to evaluate the pico library for VB.net. We are using Microsoft Visual SBaisc 2010 Express. I have downloaded the SDK and when i try to add a reference i get the error message "A reference to ....ps300a.dll" could not be added. Please make sure that the file is accessible, and that it is a valid asssembly or COM component".
Maybe the version of the SDK is tot compatible to VB 2010?
Where can i download a SDK for VB 2010? Will this SDK work with new bought PicoScopes?

Hello Andreas,

If you have downloaded and installed the SDK, there should be no need to add the dll to the project.
As the SDK install will the dll locations to the windows 'PATH' variable.
What model PicoScope do you have?
Which example are you trying to run?
