Hi again Pyroelectro, today I received my programmer in the mail.
I was able to install the software without problems but the MPLAB IDE software wouldn't allow my Pickit2 to connect to PIC16F84A. It says that it is unsupported as a programmer for this chip. I tried the other included software (pickit2 programmer v2.50) and this one does accept the chip. Am I missing something or is it just some setting?
Also I tried the pickit2 programmer software just to see if it would work (didn't see any options for config bits). Was asking for a .hex so I compiled in MPLAB IDE, programmed according to
Pin 1 to pin 4 of ucontroller
Pin 2 to pin 14 of controller
pin 3 to pin 5 of controller
pin 4 to pin 13 of controller
pin 5 to pin 12 of controller
outside of circuit
then put back in circuit but no luck.
EDIT: I realize your video on programming PIC used C18 compiler suite for "new project specs" This is not necessary because we have a .asm and not a .c file right?
