  1. Re: Latest compiler updates (2018) - will upgrade any version?

    Thanks Stephen, George. I am always nervous about changing the registry - I can do plenty of damage anyway!
    I'll try it when I am sure everything is safely backed up.

  2. Re: Latest compiler updates (2018) - will upgrade any version?

    Oh, I would say yes you should use the post #10 version, then apply the latest update. The troubles I am having go back earlier.

  3. Re: Latest compiler updates (2018) - will upgrade any version?

    Ever since I wound back Win10, and reloaded an earlier vsn of Proton, I get the message "Critical database error - unable to continue" at the bottom of the Proton editor screen. The compiler works,...
  4. Re: Latest compiler updates (2018) - will upgrade any version?

    I'm almost there George. One final question: how do you know it's a "full install". The update section says not to uninstall the previous vsn because this is an update.

    Where is the "full...

    I think I see. Finally, where do I get a Full Install from please George. My old one disappeared when I wound back Win10.

  6. Re: Latest compiler updates (2018) - will upgrade any version?

    ..which still begs the question: If you have missed some "updates", is it OK to apply later updates or does a later update include all previous updates?

    If I'm being thick then forgive me.

  7. Re: Latest compiler updates (2018) - will upgrade any version?

    Guess what happens if you DO uninstall the previous compiler and then install just an update?
    It seems to work but there is no assembler listing visible, quite a few things are not there, but it...

    Re: Programmable RF oscillators

    Just checked with our frequency meter at work. Up to 210MHz it is pretty spot-on with no jumps or strange behaviour, can't go any higher, the meter gives up.

    This is with Les's original Synth...

    Re: Is SPI SHout interruptible

    Relating to interrupts and spi: I have found that reading an SD card (using Les's SD library rtns) using spi works fine. But when I allow this to be interrupted (by Timer 2 on a 24 bit PIC) it...

    Re: Programmable RF oscillators

    Thanks John. 1500MHz is way too high for what we need. The waveform is a bit squarish below 100MHz but gets better as the frequency goes up.

    Re: carriage return/line feed

    "Enter" generates carriage return ($0D). Type newline $0A and whatever it is should rack up one line.
    What are you typing in to?
