goto top of thread listed for latest, with optimised bootloader files and new PC program.
If you can test any versions, then report back, I will amend if there are any issues, but all seems ok. !

To ensure compatibility and effectiveness, DO NOT use the earlier versions, only the latest posted as there are some major changes, there is a brief 'readme.txt' included with all the hex files and the .exe file.

Latest, as posted so far, is V1.01

Thanks.
Joe.

Latest version now V1.05 , note an added 18F14K50 file !. this required some changes.
Now tested on 32 bit and 64 bit windows, incuding win7 64bit. (Thanks Ryan !)

ALL 18F standard USB covered, 1 * 18FXXK, and looking into the 18F J series. will add more bootloader.hex files as time permits.
Please see the linked thread post for details as they are posted.

Added, V1.06 , minor changes to make the use more generic for the end user. (Changed titles to be more generic, also added about button)
ALL supported pics by proton covered apart from 18F13K22, due to ram limitations, and the 'J' series. (I need to get a unit to test these!) . when the J units are sorted, every USB pic should be covered that can be programmed by PDS (again, but NOT the 18F13K22) ... the only other K with USB is the 18F14K50, this is fully supported.
The exe files (the PC side, should be fie for ALL versions of Windows, there are 32bit and 64bit versions. ANY issues, please let me know.

If anyone has a USB J series board, that I can 'borrow' ;), I will sort those too, I will pay all postage costs and return the board.

Joe.
