<h1>How to Activate MPLAB XC8 C Compiler</h1>


<p>If you are a developer who works with Microchip PIC microcontrollers, you might have heard of MPLAB XC8 C Compiler. This is a cross-platform integrated development environment (IDE) that allows you to write, compile, debug, and program your code for PIC devices. But before you can use this powerful tool, you need to activate it first. In this article, we will show you how to do that in simple steps.</p>

<h2>What is MPLAB XC8 C Compiler?</h2>


<p>MPLAB XC8 C Compiler is a software tool that converts your C code into machine code that can run on PIC microcontrollers. It supports all 8-bit PIC devices, from PIC10 to PIC18 families. It also provides various features and optimizations to help you create efficient and reliable code for your projects.</p>


<h2>Why do you need to activate it?</h2>


<p>MPLAB XC8 C Compiler comes with different types of licenses that determine the level of functionality and performance you can access. Depending on your needs and budget, you can choose from free, PRO, evaluation, or add-on licenses. To use any of these licenses, you need to activate them first using an activation key. This is a unique code that identifies your license and links it to your machine or dongle.</p>


<h2>Types of Licenses for MPLAB XC8 C Compiler</h2>


<h3>Free License</h3>


<p>This is the default license that comes with MPLAB XC8 C Compiler when you download and install it from <a href="(^3^)">www.microchip.com/mplab/compilers</a>. It allows you to use the compiler without any time limit or registration requirement. However, it has some limitations in terms of functionality and performance. For example, it does not support all optimization levels, code size reduction features, or peripheral libraries.</p>


<h3>PRO License</h3>


<p>This is the premium license that unlocks all the features and optimizations of MPLAB XC8 C Compiler. It allows you to create faster and smaller code for your PIC devices. It also gives you access to advanced peripheral libraries, data visualization tools, and technical support. However, it requires a one-time payment to purchase it, and an annual payment to renew or apply your High Priority Access (HPA). HPA is a service that gives you access to the latest updates, bug fixes, and priority support for your compiler.</p>


<h3>Evaluation License</h3>


<p>This is a temporary license that allows you to try the PRO features and optimizations of MPLAB XC8 C Compiler for free for 60 days. It is ideal for testing the compiler before buying it, or for completing a short-term project. However, it expires after 60 days and cannot be renewed or extended. To use this license, you need to request it online from <a href="">www.microchip.com/mplabxc</a>.</p>


<h3>Add-On License</h3>


<p>This is a special license that allows you to use MPLAB XC8 C Compiler with a third-party IDE or toolchain, such as Eclipse or IAR Embedded Workbench. It gives you the same functionality and performance as the PRO license, but without the HPA service. To use this license, you need to purchase it separately from <a href="">www.microchipdirect.com</a>.</p>


<h2>How to Purchase a PRO License</h2>


<h3>Online Purchase</h3>


<p>The easiest way to purchase a PRO license is to do it online from <a href="">www.microchipdirect.com</a>. You can choose from two options: node-locked or floating. A node-locked license is tied to a specific machine or dongle, and can only be used by one user at a time. A floating license is tied to a license server, and can be shared by multiple users on different machines. After you complete your purchase, you will receive an email with your activation key and instructions on how to activate your license.</p>


<h3>Distribution Purchase</h3>


<p>Another way to purchase a PRO license is to do it through a Microchip authorized distributor. You can find a list of distributors in your region from <a href="">www.microchip.com/distributors</a>. You can also contact them directly for pricing and availability information. After you complete your purchase, you will receive a physical package with your activation key and instructions on how to activate your license.</p>


<h4>How to Acquire a Free 60-day Evaluation of PRO</h4>


<h5>Online Request</h5>


<p>If you want to try the PRO features and optimizations of MPLAB XC8 C Compiler for free for 60 days, you can request an evaluation license online from <a href="">www.microchip.com/mplabxc</a>. You will need to provide some basic information, such as your name, email address, company name, and country. After you submit your request, you will receive an email with your activation key and instructions on how to activate your license.</p>


<h2>How to Activate Your License</h2>


<h3>Online Activation</h3>


<p>The most common way to activate your license is to do it online using the MPLAB X IDE. This is the IDE that comes with MPLAB XC8 C Compiler and allows you to write, compile, debug, and program your code for PIC devices. To activate your license online, follow these steps:</p>


<ol>


<li>Launch MPLAB X IDE and go to Tools > Licenses.</li>


<li>Select MPLAB XC8 C Compiler from the list of products and click Activate.</li>


<li>Enter your activation key in the dialog box and click Next.</li>


<li>Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the activation process.</li>


<li>Restart MPLAB X IDE to apply the changes.</li>


</ol>


<p>Congratulations! You have successfully activated your license online.</p> dcd2dc6462
