I want to read data from an Agilent 34401a DMM directly into python or matlab so the data can be automatically recorded. However, I can't seem to make the connection. On my computer the device is listed as an unknown device without drivers, matlab doesn't list it as available in the instrument control toolbox, and when I used pyvisa's resource manager to list connected devices, it came out blank. I've installed pyvisa to try to get python to work, and in matlab I have the instrument control tool box along with "Instrument Control Toolbox Support Package for Keysight (Agilent) IO Libraries and VISA Interface", "Instrument Control Toolbox Support Package for National Instruments VISA and ICP Interfaces", and "Agilent 34401A Digital Multimeter - Driver".
I'm not sure why the device won't recognize any drivers. Is there a step or software that is needed for these to run?
