use a programmer with older firmware , but it will keep hassling you
to upgrade. Of course you NEED the new formware to programe the newer devices, but
not to program a new firmware chip. That's the idea anyway, and it has
worked for me.
As an aside, I ALWAYS install a new version of MPLAB in a different
directory so I can still use the old one if there are problems in the
new version - doesn't happen often but I like to be safe!
