User Reviews

  • Still not working with the DS1000Z series wfm files.

  • I have Rigol DS4034 and I have some long .wfm files between 10MB and 70MB and none of them can be opened. Is it a problem with the Rigol DS4034, the header generated or why are not opened? The error is "Range check error".

  • WFMReader is not updated to the current RIGOL 1054Z. Load of the wfm File results into "ACCESS violation at address 0051313B in Module WFMReader.exe. Write of Addess 0000027C" Improve possible? Sample can be submitted.
