I downloaded MPLab 3.09 and installed the main file, help file and then the
C demo program, where upon click'en on OK at the end caused windows to exit
(how nice) and then reboot the machine.  Quite strange...

Harrison,

Like many Windows program that modify an environment variable (in this case the
path), the MPLABC Demo installation forces a reboot to reset the environment
variable for later use.  The install program adds the directory chosen for
MPLABC to your path in the AUTOEXEC.BAT file.

It's nice of it to _offer_ to perform the necessary reboot, but forcing
it, apparently without warning, is extremely rude.  Not to mention likely
to cause problems if anything else happens to be running at the time.


We aren't in DOS anymore.

(making a note to be extremely cautious if I ever need to install an
Microchip software in a Windows environment.)
