  • How to install Asylum USB Drivers

    There are currently 2 versions of the USB drivers, we will refer to them as old and new. The version of the MFP3D software you want will determine if you need old or new drivers.

    MFP3D Version Old Drivers New Drivers
    <= 080501+1804 Yes No
    080501+1804C Yes Yes
    <=090909+0225 Yes No
    >=090909+0300 Yes Yes
    <=101010+0127 Yes Yes
    >=101010+0204 No Yes
    To install New drivers:

    PDF instructions are here:DriverInstruct.pdf
    You can download the drivers from here:
    http://downloads.asylumresearch.com/...AsylumDriverInstaller.zip
    • Save this zip, and unpack it on your desktop (or somewhere you can find quickly).
    • Closer Igor.
    • Plug in the controller and power it OFF.
    • run the executable
    • wait for that to finish
    • power up the controller
    • When windows finds the new hardware you can have it just search in the automatic places for the drivers.
    • Then start up the MFP3D software, and it will find new hardware again. Again search in the automatic places (recommended), and it will eventually install the drivers.
    • Should work after that.
    • The new drivers work fine with the older xops, so you can still go back.
    • If this fails, see manually installing new drivers below.




    To install Old drivers:
    • Save this zip, and unpack it on your desktop (or somewhere you can find quickly, you will be pointing at it a number of times).
    • Plug in the controller and power it up.

    Windows will say it has found new hardware, an unknown USB device.

    Go through the New hardware wizard and go through the advanced option.

    Then when it asked for a location, tell it where you unpacked your zip file.

    It will then install the drivers for the controller.

    When this is done it will say that the hardware is all set to use, but give it a few seconds. If the controller is connected and powered on it will then say that new hardware has been found and force you to jump through the same steps you just went through.

    Don't worry, the second time through should be the last time you have to do it for that port. Each and every USB port on your computer will ask you about the drivers the first time you plug the controller into that port. We recommend that you plug the controller into each USB port on your computer, so that you won't have to deal with it later.


    To Manually install New Drivers
    Sometimes for different reasons, the new driver exe does not install drivers correctly. To manually install them:
    Download the drivers from here: ARCUSBdrivers16391.zip
    • Log in as an administrator
    • Right click on My computer, select Manage
    • Click on Device manager
    • Power on the controller
    • If Asylum Research is listed in the devices, select the device and right click on it, and select Uninstall
    • Select Delete if it is an option (Win 7)
    • Extract the drivers ARCUSBdrivers16391.zip
    • You can either power cycle the controller, or right click on the root device and select scan for hardware changes.
    • If you are on Win XP

      Go through the New hardware wizard and go through the advanced option.

    • Software version compatability
      by Bemis
      There is an issue with the XYZ gains and older versions of the software.
      If you go to version 12 or above, then your system will be using the new gain system. Once you go to the new gains, your instrument should not use versions < 101010.

      If you want to continue using 101010, you need to make sure it is >= 101010+4706

    • How to write code to click on buttons
      by Bemis
      One of the easiest ways to get started writing Igor code is to write something that simply clicks on Asylum buttons in a certain order. Here is how to get started with that. 1) Bring up the panel that has the button you want to click on. 2) Hit Ctrl + T to bring up the tools for the panel. 3) Click on the second button on the left that now shows. 4) Double Click on the button you want to use. 5) For buttons there are 2 things you need to get from this dialog.

    • Running Copies of the Igor Pro / AR Software
      by Bemis
      There are typically two main reasons to make a copy of the Igor Pro / AR Software, and they are slightly different.
      1. You want to try out some new MFP3D code. There is a new feature that is in the unstable code that you want to try out, but it is the new code. There are going to be bugs, and so you want to be able to go back quickly, and you don't want other people in the lab to have to deal with the new bugs. This is by far the most common reason, and the easier way to make a Igor
