That's a missed opportunity on your part, IMHO. If you shipped a
COM-compatible library for the analyzer with even a rudimentary API (e.g.,
"bool readInput(int probe_number)"), your analyzer would suddenly become
more attractive than many of the HP/Tek/Gould boatanchors selling at eBay
for 2 cents on the dollar. If I could write custom acquisition software in
MSVC, I'd order one myself in 2 nanoseconds. It would be a faster, wider
version of the homebrew parallel-port hack I usually use.
