'[PIC] Pickit 3 Questions'
2009\07\04@015348 by Josh Koffman

face picon face
Hi all. I'm hoping to actually have enough time this week to try
programming some work I've been doing into actual target boards and
seeing what will need to be fixed. This will be my first time trying
to program on my Mac. I've got both an ICD2 and a Pickit 3. Does
anyone know if the PK2CMD program works with the PK3? Or is there some
alternative to get OSX support?

Thanks!

Josh

pk2cmd is for PICKit 2. It does not work for PICkit 3. There is
no support of OS X right now for PICKit 3. The only solution
right now may be to use a Virtual Machine.

With MPLAB 8.33, there is a pk3cmd now for PICkit 3. But they
have not released the sources and it is only for Windows.

Things may change in the future. I believe in the future
Microchip may release pk3cmd for Mac OS X  and Linux.

Hmm...that's what I was afraid of. I will give it a try under
Parallels, but I'll switch back to my WinXP machine if that fails.

Thanks!

I use VirtualBox and WinXP inside the virtual machine to run MPLAB on my
linux box and works great with PICkit2. The reason for this setup is that
even if PICkit2 is suooprted by that command line tool (and with piklab)
only the programmer feature you could use by this way so you would loose 3/4
of the functionality of the device (ICSP Debugger, UART Tool and Logic
Analyser). I guess you can do the same with Parallels and PICkit3 if the USB
is well supported by the virtual machine.

Hmm...that's interesting. I read a site (which I can't find at the
moment, of course) that said they couldn't get the PICkit2 to work
under one of the virtualization programs. I guess that since
VirtualBox is free, if I needed to I could always create another
virtual machine on which I ran MPLAB.

I am not sure what could it have been, however, as far as I know the
VirtualBox OSE (Open Source Edition) has no USB support, so you should
download the one from Sun's website that has the USB support. Also then I
had good few minutes to setup the permission to be able to access to the USB
devices with my normal user name but after that everything is fine. Not sure
if you will ever had such issues with Parallax? Hope you will share your
experiences with us :-)

'[PIC] Pickit 3 Questions'

Replying to my own thread (a little late), I just tried using my
PICkit 3 with MPLAB 8.30 running on a WinXP VM under Parallels...and
it worked! I haven't tried debug but it programmed a 12F683 with no
problems.

I'm pretty pleased!
