Can Matlab R2014a, or any other version for 64 bits, on a macbook pro with OS X 10.9.4 use NI-VISA or any other VISA?

Hello
Using Matlab R2014a (8.3.0.532) on a 64 bits macbook pro with OS X 10.9.4 it is wanted to control an oscilloscope Tektronix TDS5052B. NI-VISA 5.4.1 has been installed, which is communicating properly with this oscilloscope, but Instrument Control Toolbox 3.5 is not recognizing the NI-VISA
Function: instrhwinfo('visa')
ans =
InstalledAdaptors: {1x0 cell}
JarFileVersion: 'Version 3.5'
The same problem happen with NI-VISA 5.3 and NI-VISA 5.1.2
Can Matlab R2014a, or any other of its versions for 64 bits, on a macbook pro with OS X 10.9.4 use NI-VISA or any other VISA?

There are ways to connect to LAN-based instruments without needing to use VISA.
Are you mostly connecting to TCPIP instruments, or using GPIB and/or PXI instruments?

I have the same problem: My devices does support VISA since I can find them in the "NI-VISA configurator” app, however Matlab does not find any VISA driver, although i installed NI-VISA several times...
