Hello, im having problems programming some microcontrollers with Flowcode, I bought flowcode v4, but to post there, you have to sign up, which is in progress, but i need the help today.

When i programm my MIAC or ECIO-40 it all goes well, but when i try to even compile a piece of software for a 18f4550 it gives the following error:

Does anyone have a solution?

i already (re)installed pppv3 v3.11

Hello Steve,

I have brought a formula flowcode buggy (with PIC18F4455) as a part of my project.
I wanted to do a maze solving Algorithm in C (in MikroC) and wanted to download the it to buggy through PPPv3.
But I couldn't do it because it couldn't detect the chip.Following are the details of my PPPv3.

PPP v3 - Matrix PICmicro Programmer

(no USB programmer connected)

Please help me. :(
Thanks in advance for the help.

The formula flowcode is programmed using the BuggyProg software which can be downloaded from the formula flowcode page of our website. This software also comes as standard with Flowcode for PICs. The PPP software is for programming the EB006 or HP488 boards only.

To allow your C code to work with the bootloader you will need to find a way of shifting the org or start of the code so that it starts from 0x800 rather then 0x0. Not sure how you do this in MikroC as I've never used it.
