NOTE: As of time of posting, the Microchip FTP site is down. If you can not access it, try again later.
BEFORE ASKING ABOUT BROKEN LINKS, CHECK THIS WHOLE THREAD FOR UPDATES. PLEASE DO NOT ASK ABOUT WHERE THIS OR THAT IS IN THIS THREAD. ONLY REPLY IF YOU HAVE A DEFINATE CORRECTION/ADDITION TO MAKE. Thank you.
Actually, I think you can get MPLAB 7 of off Microchip’s normal website since it is free to the public. Here’s the link. MPLAB IDE
Make sure you first uninstall any old versions of MPLAB you have got lying around and then go down to the bottom and click on MPLAB IDE v7.00 Full Install. The compiler however, is on the link from FIRST’s website.
What i think is happening is there are too many user downloading it and most FTP servers have a set limit of connections that are allowed, and it is just kicking the other people who ar trying to connect. If anyone gets it could you email it to me? ([email protected])
Please edit your post immediately to remove your links to download the new compiler and link to FIRST’s website from now on. If you don’t know how to do that feel free to contact any one of the moderators to edit the post for you.
The links was edited so quickly because we don’t want the Chief Delphi Forum and FIRST getting into any trouble. The decision was to remove the links immediately so FIRST can continue a good relationship with Microchip. It would be a shame to see FIRST or team 47 get into any trouble because of a simple misunderstanding on the allowable distribution method of the new compiler.
If you wishes to edit your original, me and the other moderators will be happy to do so, as long as the ftp link isn’t there.
