How to Run the software installation verification on 4200 and 4150 TapeStation systems.
The 4150 TapeStation model G2992A and 4200 TapeStation model G2991B can be controlled using:
Operation of 4200 TapeStation model G2991A is only supported on the laptop provided by Agilent with the TapeStation that has the part number G2999AA.
Tip: The TapeStation system requirements are detailed in section 2 of the software readme file, which can be found on software download page: Agilent TapeStation software.
When using a third party PC, it is important to check its suitability. The software installation verification evaluates the computer specifications, verifies that all components have been installed correctly, and checks that the computer fulfills the core requirements. The software installation verification consists of the computer specifications and software environment text groups.
If the all software installation verification tests pass, there is high probability the computer can be used to operate the 4150 TapeStation (G2992A) or 4200 TapeStation (G2991B). It remains possible that despite passing all tests, control of the TapeStation instrument is not possible with the third party computer. It may only become clear that the computer is not suitable after connecting it to an instrument.
If some tests fail you, you may be able to correct the retrospective condition to get the test to pass. If the PC cannot be modified so that the test passes, use a different laptop or order the bundled laptop G2999AA that Agilent has successfully tested and fully supports.
