Notes:
  1.  
    The analyzer functionality of the AT-GPIB/TNT+ is not supported under Windows 2000; however, you will be able to use the standard controller functionality of this board. You can install the AT-GPIB/TNT+ as a "non-plus" AT-GPIB/TNT(PnP).
  2.  
    The IP Assign Utility for the GPIB-ENET must be performed on Windows 98/Me or Windows 2000. After the IP address is successfully assigned, the GPIB-ENET can be accessed on Windows XP.

 Notes:
  1. Restriction on using 32 to 16 bit thunking DLL: Interrupt must be disabled, it is safer to disable DMA too. Do not use 16 bit GPIB Spy to spy on Win32 GPIB applications, it will cause a general protection fault.
  2. Log onto the Windows NT system using the Administrator account.
    Be sure you installed support for the ISA plug-and-play boards during driver installation if you are using an AT board.
