Suppressing SRQ in Met/Cal 7.3

Scripting a Yokogawa 2533. It's old. It's a pain. And every time I send the ST (Trigger and Output to register) command, the unit asserts SRQ. Made sure it wasn't an issue with my terminators, commands, syntax, etc. And oddly, it does trigger and it does output to register. The command works! But it just asserts SRQ because... why not?

Can I suppress this in Met/Cal 7.3? I tried [SRQ OFF] but the system has a single IEEE board so that's ignored. It looks like Met/Cal 9 can suppress it according the help manual under instrument control. But until that upgrade occurs, is there any short-term solution I can use as a workaround?
