MPLAB 7.0 on website

Started by Gary Kato December 7, 2004
Just noticed that Microchip Technologies now has MPLAB 7.0 available for
downloading. Don't know how it differs. I'll have to wait until later tonight
to download it.

No longer supports older PICC compilers.

Ah. I don't use C (yet) for PICs. I won't be using 7.0 for my own reason: it won't install on Windows 98 (non SE).

That sounds like bad news. Which older PICC compilers are you referring to?

That sounds very ugly. Are they keeping older versions available? I, for one, will never let the newer Windows on my machines, because of their EULAs, and because W98 does enough for my purposes. Any improvement will have to come via Linux or BSD. -- Chuck F (cbfalconer@yahoo.com) (cbfalconer@worldnet.att.net) Available for consulting/temporary embedded and systems. <http://cbfalconer.home.att.net> USE worldnet address!

If you look in "Project" -> "Set Language Tool Locations" PICC is not listed.

I've heard that it is rather buggy. Leon -- Leon Heller, G1HSM http://www.geocities.com/leon_heller http://www.kasamba.com/viewExpert.asp?conMemID=105725&Catid=1111&banID=2100

You mean it won't drive picc build process or it won't recognise the .cod format? Best Regards, Mike Page

If you look in "Project" -> "Set Language Tool Locations" PICC is not listed. I can not run my compiler. So Yes. I can not create a .cod file either. Can I load a .cod file ??? I don't know, I can not create one.

Meaning: it doesn't (easily) drive the build process.

Most (or all) PIC compilers can be run from the command line. Check your documentation. MPLAB doesn't compile -- it edits (same as your everyday editor), starts a compiler for you, simulates, debugs (through suitable hardware), and programs (through hardware). The most valuable of these are simulation and on-chip debugging. See if you can run the compiler from the command line, setting the proper options to generate a file which MPLAB can use to read symbols for debugging. You should be able to simulate or debug, though, even without symbol support, although its harder. Thad
