No valid installed HI-TECH compiler drivers & disappeared path to HI-TECH ANSI C compiler

Hi everyone, 

I have downloaded and installed the 

HI-TECH Universal Toolsuite v1.37 (MPLAB IDE Plugin) 


 and 

HI-TECH C Compiler for PIC10/12/16 MCUs (PRO/Standard/LITE) Update v9.80 
. When I start  to build a simple code I always get a message 


"No valid installed HI-TECH compiler drivers". If I check the previously adjusted path to ANCI C copiler (picc.exe) its is always disappeared. The choosed MCU is PIC16F877A.


My MPLAB version is 8.56, and OS is  MS Vista Home Premium 32-bit.


Does the HI-Tech C has any compatibility trouble or I made any mistake somewhere?


Please help me...


Thanks in advance

    Have you set the paths to HiTech in MPLAB? And selected HiTech as the compiler in your project?
    Check 'Project\Set Language Tool Locations...'

    Hi,

    yes, absolutely I did them in the following steps:
    1. I have created a new project via Project wizard (seletion of MCU, selection of active toolsite and its path, creation of project file etc..)

    2. I have set the path of ANSi C compiler  via Project->Set Language tool location -> [font="'arial ce', arial, helvetica, sans-serif"]Hi_tech Universal Toolsite->Executables also,

    3. And finally, when go back to  check again the adjusted path it is always disappeared

    What I did wrongly?

    Thanks again for your help

    Are u administrator?

    reinstall everything as administrator in your profile - in my company, that was the solution - had had the same "problem".

    yes, of corse I'm always running as administrator...But now I solved the problem forever. Let me describe...

    It  caused by UAC (User account Control) setting in Control Panel->User Accounts -> Turn User 


    Account Control On or Off  and there DESELECT the "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer"

    After the HI TEch C Compiler running as dream...

    Thanks for everyone...

    Names might have differences as my Win 7 64bit Pro installation is not in english.

    That was 5 years ago.
    Computer OS?
    MPLab version?
    Did you install as administrator?
    Did you install a hi-tech compiler?

    Why in this day and age, would you be trying to use HiTech C rather than XC8 ?

    XC8 is simply a later version of HiTech C.
    Microchip bought out HiTech, and renamed it.

    It is the only C compiler directly supported by Microchip for PIC10/12/16/18 devices.

    Microchip bought high-tech and renamed it XC8.
    You can try MPLab 8.92.
    But the issue is probably Windows 10.
    You can look for some forum thread on manual installation of the plug in.
    I seem to recall seeing some.

    The issue is almost certainly Windows 10.
    If you are trying to use a HI-TECH compiler on a version of Windows newer than XP it is possible / likely to not work at all, due to changes made to Windows internals with later versions. In such a case the simplest way forward is to install Windows XP  on a virtual machine and install the compiler under that XP environment.
     
    As the author of the Universal Toolsuite plugin I can shed some light on its behaviour: It searches the Registry for installed HI-TECH compilers, runs each with the "--chipinfo" option, and eliminates from its list any which do not report that they support the selected chip. By default it selects the latest version remaining, but the user can override that selection.
     
    As part of the XC8 development team I must recommend that you use the latest version of XC8 unless you are constrained by external forces to use a specific earlier compiler. (And if you are using it in Free mode, there is no reason to avoid the latest.)

    Please, before you post, read the Forum Guidelines
    To get a useful answer, always state which PIC you are using!
