Legacy DCOM on Win XP not compatible with TEK TLA using .NET on Win 7

Legacy DCOM on Win XP not compatible with TEK TLA using .NET on Win 7


Here is our problem: We have a test bench setup with many different types of Tektronix analyzers being controlled by a PC running on Win XP and using DCOM. However, we just received a new Tektronix analyzer (TLA7012) with Win 7 that no longer supports DCOM (it used .NET). None of the compatibility modes work (several have not even been tested by Tektronix), so it looks like we need to dive deep on configs to make this work.

Gaining compatibility with the legacy DCOM app has probably been done many times over, so I'm hoping that this group has had some experience with it.

Any and all help greatly appreciated.

Thanks mucho!
