Sorry,

I did not mean to send this just yet.I have been testing the picstart
extensions and there is an ugly bug in the 17C4x programming so the
actual "fully debugged" driver is not posted yet. DO NOT use the current
version with the picstart plus. You might be sorry if you program the
wrong device.

I hope to fix this in the next hour but you know how debugging goes...

If you still don't have any luck you can try this replacement driver.

http://www.new-elect.com/zip/wintm4.zip (1.5Meg)

You will need the repaired EXE file below to copy over the installed
WinTM4.EXE that is part of the above setup kit.

http://www.new-elect.com/zip/wintm4.exe (0.5Meg)

To use select the Picstart plus option under the "Mode" menu.

This driver offers some great advantages over the inbuilt picstart plus
driver especially when combined with the coming utility "Engage!" and the
patched firmware to reduce the flash programming times to what they
should be.

Of course I'm sure you will be happy if it just works!

This driver will be officially released renamed as NewGen with Engage!
and the firmware patch shortly.

You can try the current WinTM4 version until the end of the month.
I would apreciate any and all feedback.

Jim
