MPLAB will not work (yet) with the picstart plus under Win NT. I hear
that "Win NT beta 5" fixes the serial comm incompatibility problem.



Also I have just posted my own windows driver for the picstart plus that
works indepenantly of MPLAB. I have had the one person give me repeated
assurances that it works under win NT.


I don't think this is enough for me to make any stong claims on the
matter but you are free to download and try it.

Other options are use win 95 with MPLAB.


BTW. picstart plus comms is 19200, n, 8, 1

Jim

You know, I was thinking that it just might be possible to intercept the
win16 communications calls from MPLAB and 'translate' them into the win32
equivalents.  You'd need a win16 program to do the intercept, and a win32
program to actually do the communications.  And you'd also need some kind
of thunk between the win16 and win32 world (OLE?  DDE?, WM_COPYDATA?) to
pass the data.

Almost makes me wish I had a picstart plus...
