Re: Ruler settings not showing

Re: problems with picoscope 6.13.6 on windows 10

John,

Here is a link to the 6.12.7.2724. This is the version we are distributing now since the last two releases had issues. Link good through January, 2019. This version came out in March of 2017.

Re: problems with picoscope 6.13.6 on windows 10

Oh bummer. This latest build (6.13.14.4038) crashes when editing or creating a custom probe so these tasks are not possible. :cry:
