New scripting tool makes PICkit3 compatible with PICkit2
Microchip released a scripting tool for the PicKIT 3 that essentially turns it into a PicKIT2. Why do that? There’s a huge software ecosystem for PicKIT2, it’s a popular programmer and debugger that’s been around for year. In version 3 Microchip completely changed the PicKIT and made it incompatible with the existing software. The downside is that this firmware is not supported from inside MPLAB, so in-circuit debugging isn’t possible.
