Do you have a USB Dongle, which would have been supplied as part of the Proton suite? If so, have you installed the drivers for it? If so, is the led in the dongle lit?

Thanks for listening. I have a dongle.I downloaded the proton's website and installed it on my computer. I have the pic recorder. Could you give me a hint to run a small project without using the dongle. How do I solve this program.

I'm afraid you can't use Proton without the dongle. Some people spent several years developing Proton and they trusted that people would pay for it if they wanted to use it. But, some dishonest people used Proton without paying for it. So the developers decided to use a dongle, which means that you can't use Proton unless you have contributed towards its considerable development costs. Very understandable, don't you think? Sorry.

Arin,

The compiler will allow you to use a few PICs without the dongle. For example the PIC18F25K20 or PIC18F25K22. Certain of the PIC24 series can also be used.

These particular processors can be used without limitation.
