    It can be frustrating.

    Wayne has a great demo, but it is a little out of date. Are you seeing a particular error?

    Check out This link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGc0BMCoeVg

    At about 1:43 the person starts talking about writing a program….ignore this until about 2:30 and add the Renard*.asm file instead of the “main” file mentioned in the video.

    Then program as normal in the video. The one thing I do differently before programming is I manually import the generated HEX file, via the File->import menu.

    I hope this helps.

    Here is a complete walkthrough for working with the SS Renard firmware. Everything you need to know is here.

    Question though, what are you doing? Did you buy one of my kits or are just reflashing the PICs?

    If you need any help just let me know.

    Reflashing the pics I got the renard from a member on this site and I'm assuming it was flashed for dmx

    I’m in the same boat! Waiting for my programmer to come in so I can re-flash a SS24 I bought from a member.

    That link is the one that got me through programming with PICKit III. I struggled at first, (which always happens when I don't do it for a couple of years), but I finally got it. One thing that was hindering me was a couple of "bad" PICs in my box. Just something to be aware of.
