  • PBP3 Plugin for Proteus 8

    Proteus 8 needs a plugin to be able to use PBP3.

    Download and install this ... http://support.melabs.com/DT/Proteus...8_setup_16.exe

    This only works with PBP3 and later.

    It's new, so Norton will probably complain until more people use it.

    Never download a PIC datasheet from anywhere but microchip.com

    Thank you Darrel! You solved the problem I was having between Proteus and DT Interrupts before I could even post the question.

    Best Regards,

        When we moved the forum to the new hosted service, it broke most of the links to files stored at support.melabs.com. I've copied the DT folder to the main site's download folder, so the file should be available at: http://melabs.com/downloads/DT/Prote...8_setup_16.exe

        I should note that the Proteus integration is in need of attention. It will not allow PBP to invoke MPASMX, so you should have PBP set up to use MPASMWIN from the MPLAB 8.92 package.

          Hi Charles,

          The late, great Darrel Taylor sent me a plugin to integrate PBP3 with Proteus 8.
          Now that I have upgraded to PBP3.1, the integration does not work.
          Do you plan to rework the Proteus integration for PBP3.1 any time soon?

          Cheers

            It's definitely on my list. I use PBP in Proteus most every day. I've reverted to 3.0.9 for Proteus.

            What is the error you receive? I want to make sure we're seeing the same issue.

                That error can be fixed. I don't think Proteus supports any PICs that require MPASMX.

                You will need to install MPLAB 8.92. The installer exists within the PBP3_1 installation folder:
                C:\Program Files (x86)\PBP3_1\MPLAB\setup.exe

                Once it's installed, run the PBP MPASM-MPLAB Setup utility from the PBP program group:
                Start > [all programs] > PBP 3.1 from ME Labs, Inc. > MPASM-MPLAB Setup

                Use the browse button to choose the folder where MPASMWIN resides. The default is:
                C:\Program Files (x86)\Microchip\MPASM Suite

                Restart Proteus and give it a try. The error I receive is a Windows error when it tries to run PBP. You seem to have made it past that point. What is your version of Proteus?

                  Hi Charles,

                  Thanks for the feedback.
                  I have a work around that works nicely.
                  I write my code in Microcode Studio and generate the hex file. I then tell Proteus where the PIC's hex file lives and run the simulation. All Good
                  Yes, it takes a few more key strokes but it works nicely.
                  If only we could work out why MCS falls over so often during the compiling process...

                  Cheers
