This is a 'blast from the past', and such old programmers don't support modern devices.

If you want to program PIC's, then get a PICKit2 or PICKit3, and this works directly from within the MPLAB(X) IDE - the 3 is better for more modern devices.

Hi Nigel, why do you say it doesn´t support new devices, on the specifications it says that it supports the Enhanced Mid Range Pic Microcontrollers but the Pickit 2 does not.

I have a Pickit 3 "Clone", but i want to programm AVR microcontroller too with the same software and hardware !

As I mentioned above, the PICKit 3 supports far more modern PIC's than the 2, but both are excellent programmers.

The PICKit 2 does support Enhanced processors, but only from it's own software, not from within MPLAB(X).

I have a Pickit 3 "Clone", but i want to programm AVR microcontroller too with the same software and hardware !
Why would you want to do that?, and in any case there are two different hardware designs above for the two different manufacturers.
