'MPLAB/PICStart+ Problems'

Hi Gang,

I just went into a lab and fooled around with the two PCs we have hooked up
to PICStart Plusses.  In doing this, I found a couple of things that may
cause problems:

1.  Check the version of the PICStart plus software that you are using.  If
you don't delete 1.01 before loading 3.10, 3.10 will pick up 1.01 and use it
(before and even if you load in 1.20 afterwards, which is the correct
version).  From what Ray said happened, this seems to be what happened on
one PC when I tried reloaded 3.10 with PSP 1.01 still loaded.

2.  In your Windows Directory, there is a file MPLAB.INI.  This should also
be deleted (and was in the "Terminate with Extreme Prejudice" comment
earlier) because 3.10 seems to pick it up and it doesn't work correctly.
When I was going through the two PCs, I also found .DAT files in the MPLAB
directories, I don't know if deleting helps anything, but I did and didn't
have any problems.

One of the PC's is running Windows for Workgroups while the other is running
3.10.  Both are running MPLAB 3.10.03 with PSP 1.20 without any problems.

Good Luck!

Myke

Do you ever feel like an XT Clone caught in the Pentium Pro Zone?

Thanks Mike for your help. I have one question tho...

Since there is no PSP1.20 on the Microchip
website.  It says there that when you install MPLAB 3.10, then it
will detect whether you also have PSP in your install directory and
update that to PSP 1.20.   So if I delete 1.01 before lading 3.10,
then how will it be able to pick 1.01 up and upgrade it?   Is this  a
Catch 22 situation or what?  :)

Am I correct in assuming that PSP 1.2 is bundled in with MPLAB 3.10?
If so, how do I separate the two?

I didn't even notice that.  Actually, I don't think PSP 1.20 is in the
current MPLAB 3.10 package (unzipme.zip).  I had previously downloaded
PSP12001.EXE from the Web Site and simply ran MPL3100.EXE/W02 (which is
everything that is unloaded from unzipme.zip - there is no PSP Specific
file) after deleting everything (including MPLAB.INI).

I suspect that improper handling of MPLAB.INI in the 3.10 setup to be the
problem.

I can beam you a copy of PSP12001.EXE.  When MPLAB first comes up after
being loaded, there is no PSP support, but after running PSP12001, a menu
bar item shows up.

Let me know if you'd like me to beam you a copy of PSP12001.EXE and in what
format (ie UU Encoded and attached to the note or what).

Take care,

Myke
