    I'm new to c programming and microchip and I have microchip mplab project (extension (.mcp) for PIC24). the instructor give us two link to download the software one for the mblap and the other for the compiler. the problem is that I can't use the compiler for the circuit when I open the mblap this is my debug window

    I don't know if I'm missing something or I could't find the circuit .. how to open the circuit is there free C Compiler
    I'm using windows 8

    I have heard that the GCC open-source compiler from the link below is powerful and used by many. It is free.

    Those tools are hardware devices, not compilers.

    Have you tried building your code? If that works, you have a compiler installed...

    MPLAB is just codeing and debugging of that code. A MPLAB project conatins no schematic information at all

    Are you thinking of something like Proteus or Multisim?

    MPLAB might have a small GUI to show I/O directions, but it won't have information regarding a whole circuit.

    What's wrong with C30? The student version is reasonably ok... I know there is no optimisation but it can compile quite a large program!!

    Ok! I understand... You can check your I/O's in MPLAB... you need to read about the stimulus window for your input.

    You won't see a circuit just the register conditions....
