'A question from someone getting started'
|To fellow members of PICLIST:
A couple of questions:
Andrew Errington (homepage is
http://www.lancs.ac.uk/people/cpaame/pic/pic.htm) has put together a
schematic and photo showing his implementation of the PIC programmer
that Microchip drew up in their application note AN589. This programmer
was designed to work with the PIC16C84.
Since this time, Microchip is trying to kill off the PIC16C84 and go to
the PIC16F84. Does anyone know the following:
1) Will this programmer work with the 16F84 as well as the 16C84?
2) Does his Windows-based software (available as file PROG84.ZIP from
his home page) work for Windows 95, as well?
If this qualifies as a Frequently Asked Question, is there some central
archive for this mailing list? Where is it located?

De-facto. Beware the start-up timer enable/ disable option in the
Config register. It is inverted, but this will affect very few
applications. The Code-protect is also slightly different but a
beginner should *not* want to be concerned with this.

Most Windoze things work only better under WIN95 and WIN98 IMHO, but
there might be exceptions. Suck it and see. I'm not guaranteeing.

Yes. Dunno, sorry.
