Greetings!
I'm planning to buy ICD2 or pickit2, can I burn the hex file generated buy a compiler like mikroC using MPLAB or a hex file that I downloaded in the internet?

best regards,
glenndr_15

The answer is yes. If you buy pickit2 you will be able to program the chip either using the pickit2 programming GUI or using MPLAB IDE. With ICD2 you can program it using only MPLAB IDE. For more information about these 2 products search microchip's web site.

I have both ICD2 and Pickit2. In my opinion, Pickit2 is much cheaper and more versatile, it even beats a newer Pickit3. My ICD2 is sleeping somewhere in my lab since 2 years.

I had a Pickit 2 knockoff, got an ICD2.  

I now use the ICD2 all the time now for everything from 12F675 to 16F877 to 18F452 to DSPIC without hassles.

I finally have an ICD2 I bought it for around $25 fully assembled plus shipping. Its cheaper than pickit2 unless you buy a pickit2 clone much cheaper than ICD2

Thanks.

I bought it in http://www.e-gizmo.com/kit.htm. or you can make your own icd2 just download the ichiworm schematic and download the hex file for the firmware at http://www.blueroomelectronics.com.

After looking at many clones (ICD & pickit etc),
I am beginning to lean towards getting the original Pickit2.

The amount of time and hassles saved alone makes it more than
worth its price.

that's right, the good thing in using icd2 or pickit2 is you can program or debug the micro controller in circuit.

The Pickit2 and the ICD2 are both very good for debugging. However, especially for the low pin count 10F and 12F families, Pickit2 is a bit better. See my other post

Don't know which IDE You're using, but Olimex ICD2 is excellent with MPLAB. All breakpoints are working, both C and ASM can be used and it's cheap. It's also rugged and can be misused without failure, exactly like Microchip own ICD2. Both USB and serial connection is present. Have a look at www.olimex.com and find out which PIC MCU.s can be used, actually most of them since Olimex ICD2 is a true clone. Don't forget to follow instructions for attachement(don't power Your experiment board and the ICD2 in the wrong order since this can ruin at least Yr. PIC)

Hi Robban,
I own a Microchip ICD2 running under Mplab (of course). There is a specific behaviour which, in my opinion, applied to all ICD2 clones: for 10F and 12F families, if the uC is configured as internal MCLR, internal CLK and MCLR pin used as output, then we are in trouble. This is documented on the Microchip site, seach for  ICDWarn0033.

It tooks me long time before figuring what's happened.

Hi!

Problem is that either 10 or 12 PIC:s doesn't have a Microchip C-compiler. If You're not afraid to use f.ex. Knudsen from Norway, You can always use the Demo CC5X v.3.4A, 8-32 bit int, 16-32 bit float, 32k hex code and not complete asm file(free).
It's compatible with MPLAB.

http://www.bknd.com/cc5x/downl-prof.shtml

Why not use VMWare workstation and try it out?(use whatever OS to begin with, even Linux,BSD,etc.)
Check out the screenshot in the attachment...

If You are an optimization freak, I guarantee that You'll never gonna debug You're code.

The subject of the discussion was about the hardware limitation of the icd2 and/or pickit2, not about using mplab, compiler, linux, vmware whatsoever.
