'Beware MPLAB 6.40'

[Sorry if this has come up before -- I haven't been reading the digest
very carefully]

I thought I wanted to play with some of the C language compilers and at
least one suggested upgrading to the latest MPLAB.  I got 6.40 (to replace
6.12, I think) and installed it.

It wouldn't load any of my old project files which were on a network
drive.  It doesn't give an error, it just doesn't do much of anything
when you try 'open project'.

If I moved them to a local drive it would open them but they were broken
because all the file paths are hardcoded.

You can't hand-edit the file paths becuase then the magic number won't
match and you're back to silent fail to open.

Opening and closing projects regularly crashes MPLAB.  I think this (and
the above) are probably all due to the new "version control" feature.

If you fix your projects you can't roll back to 6.12 because the version
of the project file has changed (0.9 to 1.0 I think).  I haven't tried, this
is just a guess.

I'd swear that flashing via ICSP with the WARP13 is muuuch slower now, but
since I lost all my project files I don't know what settings I might have
forgotten to tweak (eg I don't know what my old 'max addr to flash' was
set to).

The verify progress bar doesn't update the program counter so it claims
to be verifying from 0x0 over and over.  Sometimes this fails with
'timeouts' at high, nonexistant addresses.

Yes, you can change the path manually, I doit all the time.

I keep projects versions, so, when I create a new version, I just copy
everithing, change the  filename.mcp path lsiting and thats it. Just click
and open

Note that MPLAB must have write access to the project and workspace files in
order to open them.  This is a major PITA if the projects files are under
source control and are made read only when checked in.

I usually don't check the workspace file in.

But yes, I also think it's a PITA. Anybody knows how to prevent MPLAB from
rewriting the file paths every time it saves the project file? I make them
relative, so that they work always, but before checking in, I always need
to revert the file paths to relative.
