Creating a Project with the PIC Project Wizard
- Select Project -> PIC Wizard / 24 Bit Wizard from the ribbon along the top of the main window or from the menu bar if using the classic style IDE. In the prompt that appears, choose the directory and file name in which to save the project.
- When the PIC Wizard window appears, the list on the left-side will display all of the modules and other features that can be modified for the current project and selected PIC® MCU or PIC® DSC. The Options tab on the right-side of the window displays the settings that can be modified for the selected module. The Code tab will display the code generated from the current module settings.
