I don't remember if I had to do a update to get more chips recognized by the programmer. If I did, I have no idea where I got the update to down load. Like I said I have all the renard start address hex files. I don't need a program to compile with to make a hex file.
    I am a bit confused. The only time you need to modify the start address is if you are using a shared media network like xbee. If you have xbee then you have had to already do a significant level of planning. If you are using a USB dongle, a pixel stic, or a bridge, you should not need to change the start address.

    I wasn't trying to modify a start address. I was trying to program a 16f688 with a start address. But my problem was, the PicKit2 programmer was not allowing me to pick the 16f688 from a selection of devices. So I uninstalled the programmer and went and found one on the Web and down loaded it. From there I had no more problem selecting the 16f688 from the list in the programmer.
    all is good with that now.

    I have other problems with my Xbees failure to communicate with X-CTU. I started a thread on that on DIYChristmas.org maybe you can help me with that.
