    Hi everyone.
    I am just about to do a favour for a friend, which involves a small programming job on a 12F508.
    Trouble is, I havent done anything in this field for 4 years or so. Consequently it...

    Re: PIC16F886 not running.

    Your schematic also is not showing a connection between the programmer and negative power (Vss)
    I imagine that should be the spare terminal on the program connector?
    Which programmer are you using?

    Re: PIC16F886 not running.

    Um........That wouldn't blink the led (which is on PB0?) it would just turn it on permanently.

    Your main should be something like...

    main:
    portb.0 = 1
    pause 100
    portb.0 = 0
    pause 100
    goto...

    Re: PBP3 stopped generating hex files

    Well, always nice for there to be a simple explanation.
    I will file that one away for future reference.

    Re: PBP3 stopped generating hex files

    Far from being an expert in this stuff, the same thing happened to me a while ago.
    The solution was the .HEX file saved to a different location (somehow) than normal, so the programmer couldn't find...

    Boy o boy.
    I finally decided to do something that someone agrees with.
    Yep, I will leave well enough alone. I only use the smaller 16F and some 16C chips that all appear to be supported.
    Thank you...

    Re: New PBP3 user

    There is no PBP3\MPASM-MPLAB_Setup anywhere.

    PBP_MPASM_Connector.exe is in MPASM_suite.

    Ran that with no difference in the outcome.

    Dammit, I just will put up with the extra mouse-click...

    The desktop (XP pro) has the same version of MPASM, installed in 2013.
    PBP3 was installed 2 weeks ago.

    The programmer does what I want on the PC.

    Didn't the MPASM suite come with the PBP3 download, only 3 weeks ago? That should have been the latest then?

    Re: Configurator

    Admittedly the price may be a worry, but as far as I am concerned, $80 for the programmer is much better than $hundreds of pulling your hair out.
    All mine went years ago, so I figure I am in front.

    Umm, no, you only have to alter the dropdown contents if you need to change anything.
    Before the programming starts, the existing config is read and doesn't change unless you tell it to. So makes...

    ok, looks like I gotta use MPASMWIN, so I unchecked the USE MPASMX in the assembler selection.
    MPASMWIN should now be my assembler, so will give it a try.
