'MPLAB - how to define burn file, firmware upgrade'

I have a ver 1.01.00 firmware, is the upgrade on the Mchip site
and what is the target device?

With the old picstart, you could load whatever file you wanted
to burn, select the target, etc.  With MPlab, is there a way
to know what file you are burning? So far, its been the project
that is being worked on, with whatever was made last.  But can
you actually define the file you want to burn without going
thru this?  And I don't see where it is displayed as the file
that is being used.  I have an older version 3.12, is this fixed
or done differntly in the latest version?

thanks in advance

Definitely upgrade your firmware.  Get a windowed PIC17C44, so it can be
reused for the next upgrade.  The file 'PSF12000.HEX' comes with the
MPLAB package.  I suspect there are newer ones at Microchip.  Save the
OTP old chip that came with it and you can use it to reprogram your 17C44
next time.

 But can

To load and program a hex file directly, close any project, enable the
programmer and select the device type (you may need to select the device
type under Options/Development Mode as well).  Then go to the File menu
and select Import/Download to Memory.  Select the hex file from the file
selection box that appears.   Now the program data is in memopry, and can
be programmed into the chip with the Program button.
