Don't know about the picstart, but I think you need MPLAB 5.62 to
recognize the F parts. A "dot release" on 5.5 worked also, but that
seems unnecessary since 5.62 is available. This is based on getting
a promate working, but I think you still need to have MPLAB aware of

I mentioned this in another post a while ago, but you'll want to learn
enough to be aware of differences such as DECF now affects the carry
flag, but didn't on the 16 series - means you can't necessarily just
drop code in.
