Installing StudioView

A free 30-day demo version of StudioView can be downloaded from the Spectracom website, see the link below.

After the 30-day trial period you need to purchase a StudioView license to activate all features, with the exception of the Uploader, which does not require a license. The Uploader is used to perform firmware updates or upload scenario files to a GSG unit.

To install StudioView:

  1. Download the software: spectracom.com/documents/gsg-studioview-installer
  2. Locate the downloaded .exe file, and launch it. Follow the on-screen installation instructions.
  3. Towards the end of the installation process, among other things you will be asked if you want to install the National Instruments VISA driver: This driver is required for Studioview to communicate with your GSG unit, so please check the box (unless you do not plan to connect your PC to a GSG unit).
  4. Save the VISA runtime .exe file, and launch it to install the driver.

The topic Connecting StudioView to GSG describes how to establish communication between StudioView and a GSG unit (or any other device on the network).
