What works


Importing .cod files generated by SDCC (native C compiler for MCUs, including PIC microcontrollers)

Programming of a PIC18F2520 device, using a PICSTART+ compatible programmer (Olimex PIC-MCP-USB, using ZIF socket). The microcontroller was verified to work properly.

What does not

Graphical errors in the GUI - the text is rendered with surrounding white background boxes, but in general it does not cause problems.


What was not tested

Built-in assembler or C compiler
Using other programmers, like PICkit2/3
Updating programmer's firmware

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

In order to use the Olimex PIC-MCP-USB programmer, I had to enable FTDI USB/Serial adapter kernel module (CONFIG_USB_SERIAL_FTDI_SIO=m). After attaching the programmer to the USB socket, /dev/ttyUSB0 should appear. This device needs to be made available to Wine as COM1: ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/com1 Moreover, the user should have read/write rights to it: chmod 666 /dev/ttyUSB0 After that you can start MPLAB, select programmer device "PICSTART+" and PIC device and enable the programmer. Now you can erase, read and program the MCU.

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!)
