The PicKit2 programmer doesn't have the 16f688 in it's program to select from. I do not remember how I got the 16f288 in the list of device families. 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.
