By default, MPLAB® Integrated Programming Environment (IPE) is in Production Mode when launched. To view and change the settings for programming operations, and set up secure environments for production programming, you need to operate MPLAB IPE in Advanced Mode. Typically, someone has been authorized to establish the settings that production will use for the device and tool. To input those settings, the authorized person needs to log in to Advanced Mode.

Advanced Setting Window

Click Settings from the MPLAB IPE toolbar and select Advanced Mode.
