    I am trying to program a 16F628 for a 3 digit thermometer from the
    following web site,
    http://www.sixca.com/eng/articles/digittemp/index.html. The hex file
    that the author provides on this site will not load into my chip
    programmer without a Error reading HEX file message. I would e-mail
    the author of the project but there is no information about who he is
    on the site. There is no contact info for SIXCA.com anywhere on the
    site. I am not a programmer so I have no idea how to
    check the program for errors. Does anyone know of a contact for
    SIXCA.com or maybe have
    an idea how to fix the code.

    Thanks

     

  2. Does the format of the HEX-file corresponds to the format your programmer
    wants to see? What programmer are you using anyway? Does that programmer
    understand the last line of the file (;PIC16F628) to be comment? Simply
    check by removing it. As far as I can see there's nothing wrong with the
    HEX-file.

    You are correct... I removed the ;PIC16F628 from the HEX file and it
    loaded fine.

    Thanks

    You were correct about the last line of the hex file. By removing that
    line my programmer accepted to file.
    Now if I could just get the darn thing to work in the circuit....
