I've seen a couple reports of problems when installing over a previous
version.  If you completely un-install and re-install, it seems MPLAB works
fine.  We're looking into this problem with the install program.

Anyone that has installed it, are there any worthwhile enhancements, or
additions from MPLAB 5.00 to 5.11?

I uninstalled 5.0, installed 5.11 and it didn't work so I uninstalled 5.11 and
reinstalled 5.11 and it didn't work. Basically it looks to me like 5.11 is
broken.

Well, this version is really well-tested.  It works and works well, but
we'd like to find out under what situations people are having problems with
it.  One report indicated that you needed to install PRO MATE II software
when installing MPLAB to get projects to work correctly.  We are looking
into this, but you might want to try this if you are having problems with
projects.

Did you try reinstalling Windows? That usually works. Better yet, just go
back to an abacus, tin cans and string.

How come it takes a whole new version of MPLAB just to add a few devices?
Is anyone else tired of downloading from Microchip, or am I just a cynical
whiner?

If I had a big bandwidth connection it'd be less of an issue, I could
ignore MPLAB and just download pr0n and w4r3z, forget work. :-)

If you use the web install, you will only download the newer files.  So for
the fix I mentioned earlier, just elect to download the PRO MATE and
PICSTART Plus files.

Also, for users of MPASM who don't want to use MPLAB, you can also use the
web install to just download that component.

As for an answer to the question above, with every major release there are
also other fixes and improvements.  And in this case, adding MPLAB-ICE
support for the 18Cxxx architecture meant that there were a great many
implications throughout the system caused by changing from a WORD
architecture to a BYTE architecture.  Additionally, new simulator drivers,
new emulator drivers, new header files, new programming support, new help
files, new linker scripts, as well as updates to tutorials and example
files result from new processor support.  There are now about 700 files in
a full MPLAB installation --not everyone needs all those files, and with
the web install, you can select just the ones you want.  However, every one
of the 700 files is used by many people.

For the benefit of those on this list, MPLAB will probably change about
three times a year for major releases. Major changes are itemized in the
description on the web for all new releases, and we send out this
description on change notice to those who wish to use that service.  Often
a "dot" release --a maintenance release to quickly support a new part or to
fix a problem-- will be posted about three times a year as well.  You can
download every release (about 6 a year), but unless you've got a problem or
need to develop for a new part, you don't have to download every new
version.

I wonder if it's time to create different versions of MPLAB to cater for
the different PIC series.

1 for 12Cxxx 16C(F)xxx
1 for 18Cxxx
1 for 17Cxxx

I'm sure it would be a lot less complicated and easier to maintain this
way.

No thanks - I use all of the series, except 17C.
