Re: Error Cannot find compiler

For v9 issues you should post on the appropriate Flowcode forums here:
https://www.flowcode.co.uk/forums/

Regarding your issue, you need to install the 8bit PIC toolchain from here:

Re: Attempted an unsupported operation while configuring Interrupts

It sounds like there is a problem with the FCD definition file for that chip. The FCD file attached seems to work for me using V7.3.0.5. The FCD file lives in the "\FCD\PIC" folder of the Flowcode v7 installation location. Can you please post your FCD file and I will compare to see if it is the same.

Re: Eblocks1

The resource tab of this page has the datasheet for the prototype E-Block. All it does is expose the pins of 2 of the connected microcontroller ports.

Also, the original E-Blocks are compatible with v10 of Flowcode.

Re: Script error on starting flowcode

This error is probably caused by old tags in the Welcome Page, which is generated by our website. I will look into this next week as it should be an easy fix.

Until then, please ignore this error.

Re: FlowCode5

V5 of Flowcode is very old now. It may help if you upload a screenshot because I do not understand what you mean by "only the panel part appears". Another thing to try is to ensure Flowcode is white-listed in any anti-malware products you are running. Also, try opening with other target chips to see...

Re: Analog value too high

I have just compared the Flowcode v5 chip definition files for the 18F4682 and 18F4685 and there are no differences that will affect the generated code that handles analogue inputs. So I don't think this is a Flowcode issue. There is a silicon errata note for that family ( see here ) which mentions ...

Re: Multi programmer EB 006-00-7

Enter "driver" in the "Search for resources" box on this page:

One of the first results is "EB006 (v8 and older) / HP488 USB Driver", which should be the one you require.

Re: LDR (Light Dependent Resistor -> FC V8

I got me electronics degree a long time ago and since then I've mainly been a software engineer, so I'm not in the best place to answer that. Perhaps others on the forum can.

I did have a quick search of the internet and there seem to be a lot of possibilities though.

Re: LDR (Light Dependent Resistor -> FC V8

I would rule out the LDR as the source of the fluctuations and replace it with a potentiometer, just in case the LDR is not providing a constant resistance. If the flicker still exists, then I guess it's the switching of the LEDs or their drivers that is causing the issue. Maybe consider driving the...

You've probably tried this, but increasing the PWM frequency might be an easy way to reduce flicker.

Re: Problems with analog inputs by migration from a PIC 12F617 to a PIC 12CE674

There is no support for this device in mLoader, so as you discovered you will need to use an alternative programmer. Also, v8 is quite old now and we can offer limited support for it. Especially for old devices like the 12CE674. But I have some suggestions that may help. I think there could be some ...

What happens if you create a new project using that chip and compile that. Do you still get 29K in size? If not, then there is some code within your original project that is causing this issue and you might have to selectively delete more of your code (and components) until you discover what is caus...
