Project Configuration

To display the project properties, right-click on the project name inside the Projects view and select Properties. While the provided project should already be correctly configured to ensure proper hardware and software configuration, please ensure that the correct hardware tool (PICkit™ 3 or ICD3) and C compiler (XC8) are highlighted in the Hardware Tool and Compiler Toolchain windows, respectively. This section describes a list of settings that must be checked before beginning to use the tools.
