    Hello,
    I use PICSIMULATOR IDE since long. now firsst time i am using PIC18 SIMULATOR IDE.
    I am writing simple program of led blink as ,


    TRISD = 0x00
    AllDigital
    blink:
    PORTD.1 = 1
    WaitMs 300
    PORTD.1 = 0
    WaitMs 300
    Goto blink

    I set configuration bit with oscillator HS , and other as always.
    The program works fine, but the circuit is very sensitive to touch. i mean if i touch any pin or just cover with hand it stops working.
    The same program if i compile and load with mplabasm from microchip, it works fine and no sensitivity to any pin.
    what i am missing , please point out.
    thanks,
    Deepak

    What pin you are touching? Are those pins open/floating?

    Unused I/O pins should be configured as outputs and driven to a logic low state.

    One more thing:
    Always read the PORT and write the LAT registers.
