Get Something Working
Time to get the Low Pin Count Demo board fired up. Connect it to the PICkit2 (make sure the arrows indicating pin1 align). Connect the USB cable to your Windows PC and wait for the PICkit to be detected as a USB device.
Now run up MPLAB IDE. Go to the Programmer menu bar item and Select Programmer → PICkit2.
The Target LED on the programmer should light up, but the flashing light program in the 16F690 may not appear.
Again go to Programmer on the menu bar and select Release from Reset. The LEDs should start flashing.
