Why not just use MPLABX? It works just fine, and it comes with a wealth of compilers and help documentation which is available just a click away. Even the Hi-Tech C compiler can be added to the toolchain. Also, one advantage of using the native MPLABX is that it has a built in PIC simulator, which allows you to test your code without ever having to program the device. Not even once!..You can do things like step through your code line-by-line and it comes with a great debugger built in!. And the great thing about it is that it is absolutely FREE. You can get your hands on MPLABX here: It is available for all common operating systems including Linux, Windows and of course OSX. Enjoy. If you have any questions just email me
