python - pyvisa, function viOpen not found

When I run in 32 bit python,

import pyvisa
rm = pyvisa.ResourceManager()

I get this error:

Traceback (most recent call last): File "", line 1, in File "C:UserslatshawAppDataLocalProgramsPythonPython38-32libsite-packagespyvisahighlevel.py", line 3015, in new visa_library = open_visa_library(visa_library) File "C:UserslatshawAppDataLocalProgramsPythonPython38-32libsite-packagespyvisahighlevel.py", line 2929, in open_visa_library return cls(argument) File "C:UserslatshawAppDataLocalProgramsPythonPython38-32libsite-packagespyvisahighlevel.py", line 175, in new raise OSError("Could not open VISA library: " + " ".join(errs)) OSError: Could not open VISA library: function 'viOpen' not found

Here is what I have tried so far: re-installed with pip

$ pip install -U pyvisa

Here is some info of the install:

python -m visa info

You can replace import visa by import pyvisa as visa to achieve the same effect. The reason for the deprecation is the possible conflict with the visa package provided by the https://github.com/visa-sdk/visa-python which can result in hard to debug situations. warnings.warn

I am not sure what is going wrong here. From my research, it seems that the biggest 2 ways that people make mistakes are in mismatching a 32 version of pyvisa and a 64 bit version of IDLE (both of mine are 32 bit) and the other is in naming the file visa.py (which I am not doing).

Any help is greatly appreciated, cheers!

After some more digging, I found that this is a problem for python 3.8 as it does not load the DLL files correctly (something about an environmental PATH). In my specific case, I am interested in loading the keysight visa, so the below works for me.

import os
os.add_dll_directory('C:\Program Files (x86)\Keysight\IO Libraries Suite\bin')
import pyvisa
rm = pyvisa.ResourceManager('ktvisa32')

and now rm returns:

rm <enter>

I think that this is the fix to my problem. However, I am running 'offline' right now and am not able to access the key-sight test equipment to see if I can talk to them over the python scripts. My fingers are crossed :)

Thanks for reading :)
