What program are you using? You wouldn't necessarily see "activity"
from just initializing the pins. They come up as inputs (high
impedance), even setting them as outputs successfully might not
show up as activity on your logic analyzer.

Make sure you loop your program deliberately, don't just let it
wrap the program counter. A tight loop *toggling* an output pin
(make double sure you are really setting it up as an output, the
pic has the opposite convention for the TRIS compared to most
other micros you might be familiar with) will allow you to
check it out on your logic analyzer, a logic probe or a 'scope.

Oh, cover the window, and if you are using the internal MCLR
bring the power up snappily, not cranked up slowly with your
power supply pot.
