Yes but as they are connedted on ICMP, they are also on socket, i don't know if it is normal.
The 16F628 with 18 pins is ok but with more pins 12V will be on pin it must not to be.
Cheers

On the list of PIC MCU models supported , the pic16f716 is present, but I cant find it on the list of microbrn.
Is there a trick using another pic from the list?
Should I downgrade K150 to P018 and micropro that had it on its list ?
Is There a new Update that includes pic16f716 ?

Sorry about that, I've check myself and it is missing in the software. Oddly the 16C version is there. If you have an older version of microbrn that supports that device you could just try opening up the chipdata.cid in a text editor and copying the section for the pic16f716 over to our version? I'd be very interested to know if that works for you.

I'll give it a try and then let you know what happen

This device is Win 10 compatible, right? I am only asking as I cannot seem to be able to make the K150 talk to my computer. Tricky when I wish to do some stuff. I am probably making some stoopid error or I have overlooked something. I have, by the way, tried any number of COM ports. Which protocol is required? The default?

Thanks

Ian

I'm afraid the K150 doesn't currently work with Windows 10. I've added a comment to the FAQ in the first post about this but I'll paste a copy of this below:

Quote:
Currently the K150 does not work with Windows versions above Windows 7. This is due to the fact the latest versions of the Prolific USB driver no longer support the PL2303-HX version of the USB interface chip that is installed on the K150. Whereas installing an older version of the driver would normally resolve this issue, unfortunately Windows versions 8 and above will immediately update the driver to the latest and incompatible version without any notification. At the moment we not aware of a workaround for this issue however we will update this post should we find one.

Ah! Sorry! I knew I had overlooked something. I did ask one eBay supplier (I forget who) a while b ack and he assured me that it would work. So now I have two that are useless at the moment. Do you think the issue will be resolved at some point? Ah! Well! At least they ain't expensive :-/

Cheers

Ian

PS. Is there a solution that iiis compatible?

We've not had any success in finding a fix so unless the eBay seller knows something we don't I think it may be a case of misinformation.

If it's no use to you we will of course accept the programmer back as unwanted so long as it's in an unused condition.

I can't say for sure but I think it would be very likely. The problem is not just confined to the K150, there's a wealth of different devices out in the wild that use the older HX version of the Prolific USB interface. In the past most people resisted upgrading to Windows 8 so were still running Windows 7, but now with so many people moving over to Windows 10 there's a big demand for a fix. We're keeping an eye on situation so as soon as we find a fix we'll be updating this thread with the solution.

Nothing that we're aware of. The K150 is quite an old design now but it's still a very popular programmer because of its ZIF socket. I don't know of any similar priced programmer with a ZIF socket.

OK! Thank you, very much for you time and effort. I do have an older laptop and a copy of Win 7. For the interim, I may take this route.
