Installing XWisp on your PC or laptop

First close all running programs on your PC.

1. Click Next.

2. Change nothing, just click Next.

3. Change nothing, just click Next.

4. Click Next, installing XWisp will begin.

5. XWisp is being installed on your PC, one moment please.

6. Ready!  Click Finish.

It is recommended to program firmware V1.30 in the PIC from the Wisp programmer itself.
You can download it here.


XWisp is now installed.
Now we have to connect XWisp to PIC Basic.


Programmer with XWisp connect to PIC Basic

Select View in the menu bar from Proton PIC Basic IDE and next
Compile and Program Options...

1. Click on tab Programmer and then click Install New Programmer...

2. Select Create a custom programmer entry and click Next >.

3. Type the name XWisp and click Next >.

4. Type filename XWisp.exe and click Next >.

5. Click on Find Manually...

6. Search the XWisp folder.
Normally in the Program Files folder.
Open the folder Program Files by double clicking on it.


7. Search the foldername XWisp (not XWisp2) and click on it so that it becomes blue and click next on OK.

8. Check if there stays c:\program files\xwisp on the screen.
If it's not then you've done something wrong (< Back).
Is it allright then click Next >.


9. Fill in the next line (the line on the image hereabove isn't complete):
For Galva-Wisp:
For Wisp628/648:
wait err port 19200 target $target-device$ go $hex-filename$
wait err target $target-device$ go $hex-filename$
Sometimes it's also necessary to place the COM-port into these parameters.
Suppose that the programmer is connected to COM-port 3, then place com3 on front from these parameters.

The parameter wait err makes that XWisp doesn't close itself when an error occurs.
In stead of wait err, you can also fill in the parameter wait end.
When this is done then waits XWisp after every PIC programming until the <enter> key is hit.

When above line is filled in completely, then click Finished.

10. Finally click OK.

From now on you can run XWisp in the PIC Basic IDE
by pressing F10 (with compiling) or F11 (without compiling).

Compile the currently active editor page.
The compile button will generate a *.HEX file.

Compile the currently active editor page, generate a *.HEX file and run XWisp.exe from where you can program the PICmicro.
(F10 is a combination from F9 and F11)

The F11 key runs XWisp automatically, without compiling.
