In case you have problems with the above adapter: The VTI driver (which happens to be a VXI Plug&Play driver) comes with a COM interface, a MEX file interface, and MATLAB examples for both kinds of interfaces.

The driver for the VTI 1432 (which used to be the HP 1432) can be downloaded from here:
http://www.vtiinstruments.com/DownloadDetails.aspx?ProductId=325

When you install it,
- The COM interface (and MATLAB COM examples) are under C:\Program Files\VXI Technology\ME
- The mex file and MATLAB mex examples are under C:\Program Files\VISA\winnt\vt1432
- The VXIPnP driver is in C:\Program Files\VXI Technology\ME\bin\vt1432_32.dll

Note that you need to install VISA software to use the VXI PnP driver (either Agilent VISA, NI VISA, or Tektronix VISA). For example, here is the Agilent VISA library
