I have a PIC24 with the microchip serial bootloader code programmed on it. I also have the microchip PIC24 bootloader application for loading software to the micro.
I've spent the past two days trying to get the PC application to load code to the micro. I've done the following:
1. Reloaded the bootcode using a programmer.
2. Used multiple computers.
3. Used multiple serial cables.
4. Used multiple micros.
Not at any point have I been able to load software to the micro. The PIC24 application just crashes or errors out. It doesn't provide any helpful feedback either.
Does anybody know if there's a patch for this bootloader application or if there's a better bootloader application for the PIC24 out there.
I'm thinking perhaps windows did an update and it killed the application. Because the previous day with the exact same setup everything programmed and worked.
