Version 1.1

DSCUSBrv.DLL is a standard Windows DLL that can be used to help your own Windows PC applications communicate with DSC USB instruments. The driver works with all DSCUSB modules (DSCUSB and DSCUSB-PT).

The DLL will allow you to read and write instrument parameters and execute commands.

Who Can Use It?
The DLL is provided as freeware and is free to use however you wish. Anyone using a development tool that can use standard Windows DLLs can use this DLL.

Why Use It?
This DLL talks directly to USB DSC instruments and does not require knowing about a virtual COM port. So with this DLL you can talk to multiple USB devices. (Because each DSCUSB creates its own virtual COM port if the MantraASCII driver was used only one COM port could be connected to. This driver ignores the virtual COM ports.)

What Can It Be Used With?
Visual Basic, Delphi, C++ Builder and many other development tools can use the DLL. We provide examples for VB6.

All operating systems from Windows 95 upwards are supported.

How To Use It
You need to declare the DLL functions in your development tool before use so please refer to your development tool documentation or our examples.

Now includes VB.NET 2008 example project.

NOTE: The DLL is installed into the Windows System folder by the supplied installation package. When creating your own installation please bear in mind that the DLL should be installed to the system folder of the target computer or reside in the same folder as your created executable application.
