    Default Programming a Pickit2 (or 3)

    Hi
    I'm an absolute novice with Proton, but I have written a small program and I would like to test it in the real world (ie I want to program a PIC (It's a PIC16F887 by the way). I have my Pickit 2 connected to a USB but I haven't got a clue how to add it as a programmer to Proton Basic) I'm using Proton IDE version 2.0.3.3. Can anyone point me in the right direction please
    Thanks
    KevB

    Hi
    No worries, I have found a page which explains exactly how to do it from start to finish and it worked 1st time. The link is below

    Let me know how you make out with your PIC16F887. I'm still having issues with mine writing to the EEPROM.

    Although I'm really an assembler programmer and go about writing software the long winded way. I have used instructions like the one below to write to EEPROM and they work fine without any issues
    EWrite 3,[LASTPULSE3] ' SAVE STATUS

    My kind of user Kevin. Wonderful assembler mnemonics that can give 100% from any device.
    For more example programs for Proton and Proton24 or updates, please visit: Proton WIKI or Proton Files

    Yes Les, compilers have their uses for beginners and folks that need to get something done very fast but as you say if you want 100% out of your processor then assembly language is the way to go.
