Help with WINPIC please

Postby larny » Fri May 03, 2019 11:55 pm

I gave up trying to programme a 16F1708 with PICKIT3 as it (i.e. PK3) appears to be faulty (I tried several suggestions from people on other forums but nothing worked.
Several said that the PK3 "is a pain".
I have always used WINPIC to programme PICs, but the 16F1708 is not included.

I tried to enter the 16F1708 into WINPIC according to the WINPIC help document "Help - my PIC is not supported".
I managed to do part of it, but eventually came to an impasse. I could not work out what to do next. The instructions are not clear.

Does anyone know how to do it? I have attached a screen grab of the WINPIC screen which shows how far I got.
The first screen grab shows the same screen for a 12F675.

Any assistance will be appreciated.

Sorry, I've never used winpic, can't help you there.
Which is your topic on the Microchip forum?
I have two PK3s, and have only ever had problems when jumping between MPLAB8 and MPLABX. Forcing the PK3 back into bootloader mode with the button has always fixed that.
