Pickit 3 FC7

Postby howard123 » Thu Jul 14, 2016 12:02 pm

Anyone successfully used PICkit3 with FC7 and the new compiler.
PICkit3 works with my MPLAB IPE 3.35 so just wanted to make sure there are no issues beforehand.
thanks guys

I have successfully programmed using PICkit3 via FC7:

Code: Select all

Launching the compiler...
C:\Program Files (x86)\Flowcode 7\compilers\pic\bin\xc8.exe  --chip=16F1937 "pickit3_test.c" --MSGDISABLE=359,1273,1388

PICkit 3 detected
Connecting to PICkit 3...
Firmware Suite Version...... 01.28.18

The settings I got from here
Once you entered all the details you will need to select save then enter the programmer name e.g. PICkit3.

Don't forget you can't have spaces within flowchart name.
Instead of space you can use underscore.
When you scroll down to Programmer, you will see this was intended for FC6, but same parameters apply to Flowcode V7

Right now the wiki link posted above has outdated information. I followed the instructions from the following link and have had no issues using newer devices.

Hi all,

The PICKIT info has been updated on the Wiki, but at a different link;

We will be updating the compiler options for each chip family ASAP. As Steve said in another post, regarding the Wiki, it's a huge resource and requires a lot of effort to make sure it's all up to date. I'll try get on to sorting the compiler options for each family today all being well. Once sorted we'll report back.

Hope the above helps you out howard123?
