'MPLAB download'

I'm trying to get MPLAB

I downloaded the web install exe and it wants to download
25 megs of stuff.
It looks like the disks that are downloadable are a total
of about 8-9 meg.

what gives?

Hello Anniepoo (very interesting name btw),

Here's a link on Microchip's site for the entire 7 disk download:

www.microchip.com/Download/Tools/PICmicro/DevEnv/MPLABi/Software/v412/M
PLD412.zip

Enjoy!

That is interesting.

When I look at my MPLAB directory, it sucks up 31 meg of space, but I
installed with the install disks (which uses compressed files). I suppose
that means the web install is not sending the compressed data across, but
the uncompressed stuff. (just a guess).

Yes it is that big - because it has DOS, WIN3.1 and WIN95/98/NT versions of
MPLAB, MPSIM, MPICE, etc in compressed format. - that's 6 and a half disks
of the compressed stuff, OR, let the install.exe choose just the bits you
need (but it looks like it sends the expanded components if it says 25Meg).
Anyone known what install.exe is doing ?

Bye.

The web install for MPLAB downloads a small (relatively --256K) program that,
when executed on your machine while connected to the web, just downloads those
portions of MPLAB that you select.  This is usually the preferred way to
download
MPLAB, and will be much quicker than downloading the full 7 disks.  The files
are
transferred in a compacted state and expanded on your local machine in the
MPLAB
install directory.

You can execute the same downloaded file (WEB412.EXE) later if you want to get
other components of MPLAB.  The installation is smart enough to see that you've
already got some files from the current MPLAB version.

The 25Mb may refer to the size the downloaded files will be on disk.
(After decompression)

First of all , Tim is right..... there are several FREE vxd device drivers
for both the serial and the parallel port under NT that Microchip could have
used to write MPLAB for some reason they choose not to do so.

Second, I find it less than pleasing if people start hacking at each other
for having a less than perfect knowledge of the English language. This is
after all a list that is free for all (I didn't even see any statement other
languages may not be used). Do you seriously think most AMERICANS on the
list have this knowledge talk to a brit and see what he thinks about it.

MPASM for DOS is there not MPLAB.

The current MPLAB serial drivers are NT compliant.  There was no need to
go to a third party VXD for PICSTART Plus or PRO MATE.  MPLAB-ICD will
run under NT in the next release.  This one was a little out of Microchip's
control --it was spec'd as NT compliant, but first delivery was not.

The problem of getting MPLAB-ICE compliance is a much bigger problem.
The way the drivers are currently structured, there are so many calls
to the I/O that, under NT, it slooowws waaaay doowwn.  It will run,
but who wants to wait a couple of minutes when you single step?  The
drivers are being re-structured so that data gets collected and passed
in larger buffers, requiring fewer calls to switch from the 16-bit
MPLAB application to NT I/O access.

Another option would be to make MPLAB run under Win 95/98/NT/2000 only.

Darn...I had NO inention whatsoever to offend anyone. I should have worded my
sentence better. Before I typed it, I was intrigued by the way his/her
sentence was written -- I found it interesting. Again..my apologies. That's
the sad thing about text communications, you can't always convey things the
way you want them to.

Sorry again,

Tim Hamel
