I figured it out there no support for hi tech projects the project was telling MPLAB to use Hi tech compiler not XC8

I guess no one here has anything to say? Mplab-X is still lacking in a lot of ways. Guess I'll grab a download of Mplab 8.xx

I was thinking of chipping in... I have just installed MPLAB X on my Windows XP at work.... Just so I can use XC32 and XC32++.

I really don't like the interface at all, but progress is progress.... I need to program the pic32!! These are the only tools I can use at the mo...

I have bought one of theses things http://uk.farnell.com/jsp/displayPr...crid|20584516808|kword|dm320015|match|p|plid|

Once I get my head round the interface, I'll help more.

Well your in luck with those chips I was playing with the samples. There for the 16F chips and I got a error that the HI- Tech compiler is not installed. Whats funny is there no way to change the project to use XC8 It's grayed out the tab to change it.

So after a day playing with it I start a new project and it ask if I want to Use Hi-tech I click the XC8 button and copy my sample code over to it and it compiles fine.

The pic shows what I'm saying MpLab.png
