    Default Trouble with PIC software

    I am using WinPIC.

    I have my hardware set, my chip choosen, but when I want it to read it gives me an error everytime saying "failed to install -> WP800IO.sys"

    Anyone else have this issue?

    I am having trouble just figuring out what to do with the asm file in order to program this PIC.

    The reason that I ask is that a while back I tried to help a friend of mine get a JDM programmer to work. We got past the error that you mentioned by downloading the most recent version of WinPIC and logging in as admin. Unfortunately we never did get the programmer to work but we did get past that error. Apparently the version of WinPIC that was supplied with the programmer didn't work on Vista.

    Do you happen to know of another program that will work with the JDM?

    No. I'm not saying that there isn't, I just don't know. I think that the problem we had was hardware related. One problem with JDM is that there are many different JDM programmers out there because JDM isn't really a brand, it is a design that has been used by many. Some of the programmers seem to work better than others. I know that there are several here at DIYC that have said that their JDM works well for them, but I could never get the one that I tried to work.

    I'm not sure if this works on Vista but this is the program I've used with my pgm programmer. There's a few quirks here and there but all in all it works great.

    One quirk I've found with the jdm programmers is that when you start up the software you need to make sure there is not a pic in the programmer. If there is the programmer will not be found.
