Bug Fixes:

  • Various bug fixes

Please note that there is currently a difference in the way that PicoScope 6 and PicoScope 7 handle the new PicoScope 4425A and 4225A models.

Generally .psdata file can be opened in both PicoScope 6 and PicoScope 7.

However, if the file has been saved in PicoScope 7, using a 4425A/4225A, then PicoScope 6 cannot recognise the Probe settings.

In order to open such a file correctly in PicoScope 6, you will need to remove any connected PicoScope device and then run with demo mode.
