    John didn't 'make' it, he simply bundled a shareware assembler with the TK3, rather bizarrely he'd never even heard of MPASM or the MicroChip tools at all, until I spoke to him about them. If he'd heard of MPASM he'd have used that, but by the time I spoke to him he was committed to using the non-standard assembler.

    More to the point, have we established that TK3 is not a typo?

    It seems unlikely the TS would be using such an obscure tool, particularly in light of posts #4, 22, and 24 in which he states he has a PICKit3 and has installed MPLab 8.92. Having that other assembler available might add to the confusion.

    Not as far as I know, I never used it.

    As others have said, it's more likely he's got a PK3 than the long obsolete TK3.

    When i got my pickit2 back in 2008 i think thats right it came with a CD that had the software for it the code that ran on the low count board a old mplab 7.40 and mpasm.
    I had downloaded way newer mplab. I did have the whole Cd on harddrive my kids loved CD's they did all kinds of things with them while i was working so i'd save them on a hard drive
    Here a link for TK3 ftp://ftp.epemag.wimborne.co.uk/pub/PICS/ToolkitTK3/
