MPLAB IDE will finish it's intialization after the OS is downloaded. (Note: You may wish to select to ignore this warning in the future.)

Did you disable the COMx FIFO buffers as stated in the build instructions from Bill? You also have to reboot your PC after doing this.

:confused:

Thanks for the help and info, It is working now. I did not do a reboot after turning off the FIFO........
 
Great

Alright.. Now you can have some fun. :D

I built the programmer part of the Junebug on strip board. It is pictured on another thread somewhere here. Having more than one programmer can be of benefit sometimes. If you don't have more than one, the backup 16F877 is a good idea. Occasionally I have had to go back to my Olimex JDM programmer, which also makes a good programming jig since it has an ICSP plug on it and can be used like that without plugging the serial interface in.
