Microchip toolchain!!!!
« Reply #25 on: August 07, 2013, 04:08:46 pm »
I just had my first problem that initially looked like a programer problem.  I was getting the unplug USB message, device not found, program fail messages.  After going through he process of eliminating hookup errors, ground differ vial, breadboard noise, etc.
In the end it was my mistake.  I swapped out the DIP PIC and used the wrong VCore Cap on reassembly.  Blue dipped ceramics with black markings, a bad choice for bread boarding.

I can now see why people are having issues with the programer.  The error messages are not helpful at all.  It seems to have a valid issue and panics.  Gives an error message that doesn't clearly point towards the problem.  The suggested rectifications in this case was completely useless.
