Hi,

>I am using PICSTART 16C programmer. Every time I start the programmer
software, it tries to communicate with the programmer board via >COM1 and I
have to wait for the time-out to set the correct port settings for my
computer.

I used to have the same problem with the 16B programmer. However you can
specify the port number on the
command line. I simply created a BAT file that had the normal mpstart
command plus /2 to specify port 2.
If you are using Windows 95 you can do all of this via a short cut to and
MS-DOS program.

Protect option selected. I have already blown two C73As >because I
accidentally kept the default settings.

Again I had the same problem. I fixed it by adding code into my projects to
set the fuses from the
asm file. Doing it this way means that you don't have to mess around
setting them manually
each time. I use mplab as my development system now and the assembler
allows a command
of the form:
       __config        _XT_OSC & _WDT_ON & _CP_OFF
to configure the fuse settings. Not sure if the old assemblers support this
(but I'm sure other
people here will know :-)). Oh and might be as well to try this using a
safe fuse like WDT rather
than the CP one!

Hope this helps
