    Thanks Chris, I was originally aware of that about the PICkit 3 and completely forgot it until you mentioned it. I knew there was a reason I preferred the PICkit 2. You can get great clones of PICkit 2 on eBay. I bought one from China for $8.39 plus $1.85 shipping. It works great. http://ebay.to/2p1DfzA Great point on the developing with another device! That is so true. I often use my CHIPINO with 28 pin PIC16F886 and Arduino style shields to develop and then program a smaller PIC later on. GCB does...

    It's because unlike PICAXE or Arduino, GCB doesn't have one hardware platform to communicate with, it works with multiple devices. PICAXE all use the same programming/communication cable and Arduino uses the bootloader and IDE. Though you can easily create this kind of feature, for example on the CHIPINO, I like to use the PICkit 2 programmer then I can send data back through the programming pins RB6, RB7 to the built in terminal application of the PICkit 2 GUI. Then I can just use a SerPrint command...

    I see the problem. Check your schematic. The DFRobot shield shows DB4 - Digital 4, DB5 - Digital 5, DB6 - Digital 6 and DB7 - Digital 7. On CHIPINO that is Digital 4 - PORTC.4, Digital 5 - PORTC.3, Digital 6 = PORTC.2 and Digital 7 - PORTC.0. This was done so so the C6 and C7 could line up with the Tx and Rx pins of the Arduino pinout. If you include chipino.h all the I/O will be defined by the proper D0 thru D13 and A0 thru A5 port connections. Then you could just #define LCD_DB4 D4 #define LCD_DB5...

    Anobium - None of my CHIPINO sample files were in the CHIPINO folder of my install. Should I send those to you again?

    I just tested this attached sample on a CHIPINO and DF Robot LCD Shield and it worked fine displaying Hello World. Using version 0.97 of GCB.

    Did you try the sample program on this page: http://www.greatcowbasic.com/sample-projects.html

    Makes sense. Plus its fun to design your own.
