Manually define the Pickit macros

Here we’ll explain how to define the Pickit macros manually without overwriting any existing macros.

Define macros

Booting the controller in normal mode, the macros can be defined manually. To do this go to SYSTEMSETUPMACRO INST..

Note

In order to use the example Pickit files, the macros should be defined in the exact same order as shown in the image below. Otherwise, the example files should be adapted with the correct macro ID’s before being run.
