MCC does not start as expected

When I run MCC in my project I get an "empty" screen ... well, empty of what I expect - see screen shot.
 
I can see how to start the process of configuring.
 
Any help will be gratefully received, thank you.
 
MPLAB X IDE v.5.25
MCC v.4.0.1
Windows 8.1 Pro
xc8-cc v.2.10
PIC16F877A
attached:
screen shot
config file - had to give it ".txt" extension at ".mc3" can't upload
IDE log - on second post as when I tried to upload it removed the other two

You are seeing nothing from the MPLABX Code Configurator(MCC) tool because the PIC16F877A is not supported.
 
In previous versions of the MCC there was a diagnostic message that said the selected controller was not available. It would seem that Microchip believes that useful and informative messages are too confrontational and has decided to protect developers form the emotional anguish of knowing the old controller they have on hand is obsolete.

Cheers mate.
 
What a croc: I love those old chips; I guess that's why it didn't work with the 12F683 either!
 
Oh well, I'll do it by hand.

I do not miss the 3-digit PICs in MCC: they are really simple to configure - just following the datasheet.
It took using the CLCs to convince me to use MCC (as the 1st CLC configuration tool was just a P.I.T.A.)
I didn't miss MCC even when configuring some 5-digit PIC16  prior that. Although I'm now happily using MCC - even with its flaws (like changing order of peripheral initialization due to the sequence of editing their properties).

PEBKAC / EBKAC / POBCAK / PICNIC (eventually see en.wikipedia.org)
