XC8 not showing up in tool suite for PIC16F28A in MPLAB V8.92 New Project Wizard

I want to create a small .c project using PIC16F628A, MPLAB IDE V8.92, New Project Wizard. I have installed XC8 compiler (and also Microchip C18 on the same PC). The New Project Wizard does not show XC8 as a tool suite option, even though it is in the same c:\ProgramFiles\Microchip directory. I asked the Wizard to show all installed tool suites, but it does not show XC8. Specific questions:
1. Which "default" C compiler in V8.92 works for PIC16F628 / PIC16F628A?
The tool suite which shows up under the New Project Wizard shows a few (starting with B Knudsen Data CCSX and all the way to XC32 C-compiler tool suite), and I tried selecting a few of them, one at a time, but could not get the code to compile!)
 
2. Even after getting into the directory for that C compilers (e.g., XC8 or C18, there are several files in BIN sub-directory with .exe extensions and do not know which is the right .exe for my rather simple .c program?
 
Thank You!

    The "MPLABXC8.dll" file needs to be registered as a service see this: thread for how to do this.
