'[PIC]: MPLAB6 concurrent with MPLAB5?'

I just received the new 2 Cd set of the Microchip website-on-cd. Complete
with both old and new versions of MPLAB.

Can anyone tell me if it MPLAB6 is a well behaved application and can be
installed concurrently with MPLAB5?  Thanks.

Oh, and, by the way, what's the report back from the attendees to last
weeks Masters Conference?  What's the hot skinny on new products,
development tools and stuff?  Just how hot was it in Arizona? Enquiring
picsters wanna know!

At the Master's Conference both versions were loaded on every PC that I
saw.  Interestingly, the only classes I took that utilized ver 6 were the
dsPIC class and one class that used the ICD II.  In the short time I worked
with it, I saw a bug or two.  In the HiTech C class at the beginning of the
class, they announced they would be using ver 5.x instead of 6 because 6
wasn't sufficiently stable.  The recommendation that everyone was making
(including Microchip reps) was that 6.1 should be MUCH better.  I think
I'll probably wait.

The ICD II looked like a big improvement over the ICD I... in fact I bought
one while I was there (they were going for $80).  If for no other reason,
the USB interface was much much faster.  There was some disagreement among
the microchip people about whether the ICD II would ever be able to program
16X series chips (other than 16F8XX).  The sales people said that
capability would be in MPLAB 6.1, the engineers said not 6.1, but probably
"someday".

The conference itself was fantastic.  Some of the sessions I attended were
marginal, but others were outstanding.  I thought the 18F assembly class
using the ICD was especially good, as was the session on designing digital
filters and implementing them in the 18 series PIC's.  I came into that
session with only a cursory understanding of digital filter design, but
came away feeling like I could really do it.  The entry level programming
session on the dsPic was also worthwhile, but moving to that chip is going
to take some adjustment.  I loved the new assembly instructions (like the
nearly "automatic" ring buffer and the availability of a DO instruction to
create control structures.

In this period of tech industry depression it was amazing to see a company
spending so lavishly on a conference.  The food was nothing short of
amazing and the beer and wine ran freely every night.  The evening
entertainment was great... the robot building competition was very
especially well thought out.   I even got to meet a PIClister or two.

My University did not pay my freight on this conference.... it came out of
my own pocket.  But it was well worth it and I'll probably do it again next
year.

Thanks, John, for a great write-up. I'll have to go myself one of these
years...

       Which reminds me... I'm running MPLAB 5.50.00 with MCC18 and need to
restart it several times a day. I get a "cannot spawn process" or similar
error when attempting to build a project. Getting out, then getting back
in again solves the problem (the typical Windoze fix). Is there a memory
leak somewhere?

The MASTERs was a birthday present to myself - I took vacation from my paying
job and got the household CFO (my wife) to sign off on the conference fee. :-)


I attended sessions on the 16C781/2 and rfPIC that made you feel like "Super
PIC Man". :-)
Hoping to get the gerbers for the demo boards so that I can recreate the
experiments here.

If you've ever been on a cruise and reached total food overload about day 3,
that's what the MASTERs was like. Great chow and lots of it.

And as far as the heat, you deal with it.
Some people were discussing the room fees and figured they would be triple in
the winter.

Having access to so many Microchip people and getting to take a tour of the
fab makes it a non-issue.

MPLAB 6 does not have the support for all the parts yet. It is limited to
18 and DSPIC but should have the rest of the parts "Shortly". Has a lot of
promise but not there yet. You can play with it now with 5 loaded also and
no problems.
