    Default PICKit2 & PIC16F1826 supported??

    I want to program my LEDancer chips that use a PIC16F1826 chip.
    I just downloaded the latest PICKit2 software version 2.61 from their website.

    The website says the chip is supported. http://www.microchip.com/stellent/id...cName=en027813

    When I open the programmer it does not recognize the chip and none of the 16f15xx, 16f18xx or 16f19xx chips are listed in the drop down of selectable devices.

    I know it has to be something obvious that I am missing.
    I would like to by a vowel please, if anyone has an answer.:confused:

    Shows support for the PICKIT2 standalone software, but not for MPLAB.
    Any chance you were trying to program from inside MPLAB?

    MPLAB's Says it's not supported with a PICKit2 though.. maybe that's the issue?

    MPLAB said it was not supported.
    Specifically downloaded latest software for PICKit2 standalone V2.61 and am using that, but it still is not listed.

    It hasn't been said, so I will ask. Are you using the correct programming socket? It does not use the same one as the 16F688.

    It looks like it is possible to have the latest PicKit2 programming software and yet not have the latest device file. What version of device file do you have? (shown in the upper right corner of the Help -> About window).

    According to this page, PIC16F1826 is a supported device:

    http://www.pic16.com/en/wzcapi/pic_kit2_list.htm

    They refer to version v1.62.9 of the device file. I'm not sure if there is a more recent version or not.

    EDIT: looks like 1.62.9 is the latest, according to the PicKit2 page at:

    Ok you need to download two files.

    First download and install PICKit2 v2.61

    Then download and copy and rename Device File 1.62.9 file to the PICKit2 directory

    It does work. Two chips programmed.

    This may help
