Thread: trouble getting started
face BY : Michael Maiorana email (remove spam text)

Thanks for the help. Yes, I see that it is necessary for me to program the
config register in order to use a crystal. The problem is that I can't get
it to program. The MPASM directive
is supposed to do that. But, when I try to program the PIC with the hex file
generated with that command, the programmer pukes on it. It adds a line,
second to the bottom, that has the 3FFE word that needs to be programmed. I
looked up the Intel Hex format just to see if it was a problem with the HEX
file, but it looks fine.
Any idea why the programmer would not want to program a high byte like that?
The programmer is working to some extent as I can run the code programmed to
it using an RC oscillator.
