I think it does not matter. It should work fine. See below.

Could it be that you are not triggering? To check change
aquisition mode to "gap-free" ("Aquire" -> "Edit Prot.") and make
sure that "start trial with" in "trigger" is set to "immediate".
If it doesn´t work, you could call Ward from Axon Instruments. I
don´t think it´s a problem with your VM since calibration works
fine... If I can be of any more help send me an e-mail (don´t
forget to manually remove "-remove-").
