Can I load a standard copy of Windows OS on my Tektronix oscilloscope that is runing Windows XP or Win7?

Question :

Can I load a standard copy of Windows OS on my Tektronix oscilloscope that is runing Windows XP or Win7?

Answer :

No, as the OS we are using is NOT 100% the same as the standard Window OS.  It may have the same base name, such as Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit: however to make it work with our hardware and instrument s/w we do incorporate some modifications  in the following areas:

  • Tek Visa
  • Tek Scope Application
  • Incorporation of Tek fonts
  • Incorporation of what we deem security issues
  • Other minor changes, product dependent
