Hi,

As everyone knows, a new project created by Project Wizard, is limited to a few PICS.
The PIC's showed in the combo List are defined inside of c:\....\SourceBoost\boost.wizard.templates.
Inside of this folder we have: commum, PIC16F84, PIC16F628, PIC16F877 and PIC18F242 folders, which corresponds to the chips available.
How to expand this list?

Example: create a Project with PIC16F886.
1. choose the closest that is PIC16F877.
2. Copy this folder and rename it to PIC16F886.
3. Inside of PIC16F886 edit data.boost.wizard and main.c.template files.
4. Delete all sections related with PORTD that not exists on this PIC.


Now we be able to create a project with PIC16F886.
I'm sure we can play with those files to do another things.

P.S.. After compile i verified that fuse configuration word needs a few adjusts.
Here is a question that who knows could give an answer.

Regards.

I am also interested in expanding the usefulness of the wizard to all supported chips.
Can we work on this as a group effort perhaps?
I looked at it but couldn't figure out how to make it work.
How can it be done? If given instructions on how to do this, I will start contributing new fuse templates.
