    Default New PIC Utility. PICMultiCalc

    Hi all,
    Few times ago i did this little utility to help in Timer, Usart, Eusart and PWM calc. It have been tested by some user here and there. Thanks to them

    'till now, it's seems to be bug free. It assume a minimum of knowledge on your side so far.

    I plan to do another version wich will be more complete. It will include more code generation tool. It's still a work in progress but once i'm fixed on the whole idea, i'll post a Trial version.

    It will create code for PBP, Swordfish and probably some other compiler.

    You have to know it's a tedious job to read all datasheet and be sure everything is correct. For this reason, there's no release date.

    Any wish, comments, suggestions are welcome.

    Enjoy!


    EDIT: Mister Es site is down, get v1.3.1 down at Alain's post:

    It's not a bug, it's a random feature.
    There's no problem, only learning opportunities.

    Default Excellent Program.

    I can Highly Recommend this program for anyone using PIC's.

    It does a fantastic job of calculating those tedious formulas that look so complicated in the datasheet.
    • Need to know what value to load in a Timer for a specific frequency or period?
    • Want to know which prescaler will give the best results?
    • Do you know the reload value but want to find out what frequency it will produce?
    • Want to use the USART without HSERIN/OUT
    • Want to use 10-bit PWM?
    It's all there, and more.

    Everyone should have a copy of this sitting in their QuickLaunch toolbar.

    As you know, your inputs have been valuable for some features. Thanks for that too.

    Glad to hear you like it!

    I just stumbled upon this problem on my Windows10 machine, ie where PICMultiCalc wouldn't run due to missing MSSTDFMT.DLL
    It's very strange because I've had this machine up and running for several months and can't Believe I've not had to use PICMultiCalc on all this time. Anyway, the fix is as above but it took some additional steps to get it to work on my machine.

    * I had to start Windows10 in fail safe mode in order to be able to actually copy MSSTDFMT.DLL to the SysWoW64 folder.
    * Run the command prompt as Administrator
    * Exectute the command %systemroot%\SysWow64\regsvr32 c:\Windows\syswow64\msstdfmt.dll

    This succesfully registred MSSTDFMT.DLL and PICMultiCalc works again.

    /Henrik.
