Keithley 2110 Driver error

I am getting errors when i run the program.  Screen shots of the errors and the driver properties are are attached.  I believe everything is set correctly.  The DMM is set to GPIB address 02.  You can see the *IDN? returns the DMM info.  What am i missing?

The first error (-8) indicate that your driver SHORTCUT (as opposed to the driver properties) was not configured. You need to right click on your DMM (Under System Drivers), select Properties, then select Interface tab, select the GPIB and type in the address. See the attached image.

The second error  (-9) is result of the first one.

Make sure that you GPIB card is also configured from your Tools Options, Interfaces page. see the help for more information.

You can also open the example provided with ATEasy Ki200x.prj, configure the shortcut and run it, see if it happened in the example also.

Re: Keithley 2110 Driver error

Let me provide more detail.  when i click Taskit i recieve the errors.  if i click to ignore the errors and continue in the program the meter will set when the commands are sent (function, read measurement).  that tells me the address and GPIB card are set and working correctly.  The GPIB card in the PC is used for other equipment and is working.  when a program in ATEasy starts is there an initialization or initial compile that would kick out this error before the program is run?

Looking at you screen capture it looks like the terminator is set to "\r\n", It should be "\n". Can you try to change it? Can you run TaskIt on the example and see if it works?
