PXZ series – IVI-COM Multi-Environment Drivers

IVI-COM Multi-Environment Drivers

An IVI-COM multi-environment instrument driver compliant with the IVI specifications. Compatible with Microsoft Office VBA, Visual Basic 6.0, Visual Basic.NET. And because an IVI-C driver is bundled, it is possible to use it easily in LabVIEW and LabWindows/CVI.



Last update



  • Windows 10(x86/x64)


  • To use IVI-COM instrument drivers, a VISA Library that supports VISA COM.
    *IVI Shared Components(Minimal IVI Version 2.3)
  • We recommend using one of the VISA Libraries supporting VISA COM shown below. (Mind that multiple versions of VISA cannot be installed at a time.)
    • NI-VISA 19.5 or later
    • Keysight IO Libraries Suite 2020 or later
  • When using 32bit OS, the x86 edition of the instrument driver can only be installed.
  • When using 64bit OS, both x64x86 editions of the instrument driver must be installed independently as your need.

      System Requirements: The driver installation will check for the
      following requirements.  If not found, the installer will either
      abort, warn, or install the required component as appropriate.
      Supported Operating Systems:
        Windows 10
      Shared Components
        Before this driver can be installed, your computer must already
        have the IVI Shared Components installed.
        IVI Shared Components version 3.0.2828 or later.
        The IVI Shared Components installer is available from: 
        Any compliant implementation is acceptable. Typically, VISA-COM is
        installed with VISA and other I/O library modules. 
    Additional Setup
      .NET Framework
        The .NET Framework itself is not required by this driver. If you
        plan to use the driver with .NET, the minimal .NET framework version is 2.0.
      The .NET Framework requires an interop assembly for a COM
      server. A Primary Interop Assembly, along with an XML file for
      IntelliSense is installed with the driver. The driver's PIA, along
      with IVI PIAs are installed, by default, in:
      :Program FilesIVI FoundationIVIBinPrimary Interop Assemblies
      The PIA is also installed into the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) if
      you have the .NET framework installed.

     Driver Source Code
      The driver source code is located in the directory:
       IVI FoundationIVIDriverskipxzSource
      Building the source code requires Visual Studio 2017 or greater.
      - To build the driver source code from Visual Studio:
            1. Open the KikusuiPxzDriver.vcxproj file in Visual Studio
            2. Execute the Build command.
            3. Save the solution file (.sln) when closing the project, if desired.
      - To build the driver source code from the command line:
            1. Open a Visual Studio command prompt
            2. Navigate to the source folder
            3. Type "msbuild KikusuiPxzDriver.vcxproj"
      NOTE: After building the source code, a number of intermediate build files are naturally emitted as part of the build process.
            Since these build files were not deployed by the driver installer, they will NOT be removed if the driver is uninstalled,
            and the Source folder will remain after uninstallation.  This folder can be safely removed manually, if desired.
