What works

Installed a fresh Wine RPM and configured the default to run XP programs. Then unzipped the MPLAB 8.15 IDE so that it could be installed. Instalation worked well except for not being able to find a few legacy programs (you can click to ignore errors). When you begin running MPLAB 8.15, you will have a couple of pop-up questions asking about legacy programs which you can reply okay to ignore and then the program works fine after that. Projects compile correctly. Simulator works well. The PicStart+ Serial programmer works. It appears what is needed to build a project works fine in Linux as well as in Windows. The code window looks just as bad in linux as it does in windows, therefore if you prefer to format with TABs in assembler, you are better to use Linux's Kwrite or another linux text editor. It appears that MPLAB also works okay with Linux CR as well as the Windows CR/LF

What does not

Installation fails to create a correct menu item in KDE to run the MPLAB IDE therefore you will need to run the Program Manager and select Execute, then Browse for the MPLAB IDE located in C:\ProgramFiles\MicroChip\MPlabIDE\Core\MPLab.exe to run the MPLAB IDE


What was not tested

Do not have any USB programmer, therefore did not attempt to test any USB type programmer.

Additional Comments

MPLAB appears to work well enough using Wine that it can be used for testing, building applications.

HowTo / Notes

The newest version is built on Netbeans (Java) so a Linux native version was released too. Now there's practically no reason to use these legacy versions in Wine. (Thanks, Microchip developers!)
