16F88 with MPLAB 5.70

Started by upand_at_them August 14, 2004
Dang, another hurdle. I'm using MPLAB 5.70, but there's no option
for the PIC16F88 in the processor select box.

Mike





The device is defined in version 6.40 - you might want to get a
newer version of MPLAB.

Well, the newest version says Win98SE or higher and I'm running
Win98. I also don't meet the RAM requirement.

Isn't there a definition for the 16F88 I can add somewhere?

I put a copy in the Files section PIC16F88.INC - let me know when
you have it so I can dump it.

Got it, thanks.

But it still doesn't show up in the list of processors when creating
a project. Does this matter?

I don't know. I suspect it may be a problem when you try to create
a 'project'. It will probably work from the command line just
fine. You did put the file with the rest of the 'includes', right?

Windows SE updates are free (or they were) but the free version does
not include one particular networking feature; Internet Connection
Sharing. Check out the Microsoft site. I would download the latest
MPLAB and install it in a different directory.

I would keep at least one machine with Win98 SE around - there are
MANY programs used for Roboics projects that won't run on NT based
systems such as Win XP, Win 2000, NT 4.0, etc. I have one machine
just for this purpose and I am thinking about resurrecting a DOS
machine. I have an old Pentium laying around that just might work. --- In , "upand_at_them" <upand_at_them@y...>

Uhh, with Microsoft nothing is free.

That's a shame, too. I really like NT. I had it on an old laptop
and it worked great. Tried Win2K, but it took too much memory and
was much slower. NT was the fastest of the bunch that I've tried (I
only have old machines), but I needed Win98 or higher to run AGWPE
sound card packet.

Thanks,
Mike

Well not exactly. If you have a Compaq, specifically in my case, they
are forbidden to give/sell you an upgrade disc per agreement with MS,
since 98 is no longer a supported system. And the generic Windows 98SE
disc will not work, or at least I have not be able to get it to work.

I compared the two programs. 5.7 uses a .DLL, .INC, and .LKR file for
each device. Version 6.6 uses a .INC and .DEV file for each device.

Oddly enough 5.7 does have 16F88.LKR, but not the other two. The .INC
will work of course, but without the .DLL, bummer :(
