Default PIC16F84A winpic programming problem

Hello, it is my first time on programming a PIC and i would like to start from PIC16F84A. I used WINPIC and had an error "ERROR: Programming FAILED !" The codes turned red..

I copied this messages from the Messages tab:

Erasing ("bulk" or "chip") ...

Programming CONFIG-WORD

Can you help me how to program my PIC? I made my own PIC Programmer based from JDM Programmer but omitted the IC sockets. I am using the ICSP method. My PIC is placed on the breadboard and I'm just connecting the 4 wires from the programmer to its corresponding pin.

I am using the JDM programmer from this site:

These are the 6 wires I've used:

1- connected to MCLR pin of PIC16F84A
2- not used
3- connected to the ground (somewhere around the keyboard)
4- connected to RB7
5- connected to RB6
6- not used
