  • On first usage after install, voltage on both channels was set to a bad value until the sliders were moved – fixed.

BasicScope 0.14 binary for Windows XP and later
BasicScope 0.14 source for Visual Studio 2010 Express
Changes for version 0.14:

  • Hardware trigger won’t work above about 80% of full scale. This is a Hantek driver issue.  Starting with version 0.14, this can be worked around by enabling software triggering.
  • It is possible to set a trigger level beyond full scale of the scope.  For example, if the scope is ±5 volts full scale, the user could set a trigger level of 6 volts, causing the scope to never trigger  Starting with version 0.14, there is a warning posted in the tooltip for the trigger level.
  • Added save to CSV file
  • Added more info to saved trace for bug reporting purposes
  • Added tooltips for most controls

  1. I would like to Thank You for your software. It is an excellent software to troubleshoot electronics on moderns cars. The software is easy to use and everything needed is on the screen. No need to go trough pull down menus to save a trace. I love the fact that I can save a trace right away by pressing “Save Trace” button. I love the big buttons that are easier to see when I am working outside where computers screens are more difficult to see. Trigger button are excellent is easy to use. Your software is well designed for automotive work.

    With your software, I was able to easily see the following wave from : fuel injector wave form, primary ignition wave form, MAF (mass air flow sensor) wave form, TPS (throttle body sensor) wave form and cam sensor position wave form. I have save all these wave form while I was doing preventive maintenance on my car. If you want them for your website I will happily send them to you.

    You software is working very well on Window 10.

    1. Glad it worked out for you. Sounds like you’re really serious about working on engines. If you ever make it a business, you would want to get a better scope, of course.

      1. Hello, I have a 6082BE model and I was wondering if this software could be made to work with this model.

        I practically do not use the scope due to the horrible usability of the supplied software.

        Thank you, Charlie

        1. I took a look at the 6082BE SDK (software development kit), and it seems that the interface is quite different from the 6022BE. Almost as if the libraries were written by a completely different team. So it doesn’t look like an easy task, and I don’t think I could pursue it. However, the BasicScope source is open, so if anyone wants to try, they are more than welcome.

  2. Hi,

    I’ve just tried your software with my 6022BE, it says 6022BE connected but I see no traces on the screen. I’m hoping that it’s just something silly that I’m not doing right.
    I have it running on Windows Vista.

    Thanks. Steve.

    1. I’ve never actually tried it on Vista – only XP and Windows 7 – but it should work. Are you sure that the trigger is set so that there will be a display? If using the internal square wave generator, a good setting would be 1 mS/division, 500 mV/division, +edge trigger at 500 mV. I’m assuming that the official Hantek software works fine with your scope?

  3. Hello, thank you so much for your work on this! I’m looking forward to giving it a try but unable to run it. If it matters at all, the included software works for my scope just fine. I suspect this may be due to me having a 32 bit version of win10 installed. I get the error:

    “Basic scope couldn’t load one of HTMarchBE.dll HTMarch.dl, or HTMarch.dll Try reinstalling.”

    Any help would be most appreciated!

    1. Interesting. I have to admit, I never tried the program on Windows 10, but if the Hantek software works, then I think there’s hope for BasicScope. This may require a bit of detective work. The first, easy thing to try, is once the Hantek software is working, try reinstalling BasicScope. Perhaps you already tried that.

      Basicscope should install to a directory something like “c:\Program Files\BasicScope” or “c:\Program Files (x86)\BasicScope”. Try looking in that directory, and make sure that the mentioned .dll files are in there, alongside BasicScope.exe . It could also be that your antivirus software is somehow sandboxing or blocking the dll files from loading. The dll files included with BasicScope definitely work with Windows XP and Windows 7 32-bit, but for Win 10, you may need later versions. I’d say, try looking in the Hantek software diretory, and if you see an HTMarch.dll file there, copy it to the BasicScope directory, overwriting whatever is there. Might work, might not.

      Hopefully you’re covered for now with the Hantek software. It’s more complete than BasicScope, which was just a hack I did a couple years back.

  4. bạn có thể cho tôi biết, bạn xây dựng bằng ngôn ngữ c++ trên nền tảng nào vậy? visual studio và phần mềm thứ ba là gì

    1. xin lỗi, tôi trả lời bằng tiếng Anh 🙂

      (He is asking what my build environment is)

      Basicscope was compiled under Visual Studio Express 2010, on a Windows 7 system. However, it should compile under newer versions of visual studio and Windows. Besides the source files available on this page, you will also need the htmarch and htdisplay dll files, which are included with your Hantek 6022BE unit, or can be downloaded from the Hantek website. On this page, you will find a file UsingHantekSDKTips, which will be the best guide as to how to compile. Also on this page are documents which explain my best guess at how the Hantek library functions work. Sorry, everything is in English.

      Cảm ơn
