Just checking out MPLAB X - looks promising but far from stable yet.
On a Dell Lattitude, it will only launch when "Run as administrator" - on normal Open, it vanishes instantly.
This is my present setup: Product Version:
MPLAB X IDE Beta6.0 Java:
1.6.0_26; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 20.1-b02 System:
Windows 7 version 6.1 running on x86; Cp1252; en_IE (mplab)
I'm using a very simple setup, a PIC18F452 target with mpasm(v5.40) - works ok on Simulator but no joy at all with ICD3, (which works perfectly well with MPLAB Ver 8.7).
I switched the ICD3 driver to MPLAB X using the switcher facility which now shows SN: JIT091395309 in the Project Properties window.
However when I try to debug project I get the following message Launching Could not acquire hardware tool communications resources: ICD3PlatformTool SN#JIT091395309 The debugger could not be started. Terminating debug session. User program finished
In the project environment window, for Debug Tool, I get
- Inactive Connection: ICD 3: JIT091395309
It looks to me to be a driver problem - no driver updates found on Microchip site. I'm stuck.
Suggestions most welcome
