You have the PicKit 3 and a board (which board?). You have either a compiler or assembler (assembler comes with MPLAB - you DO have MPLAB, don't you?).

If you got a board in a bundle with the PicKit 3, there are probably some samples around somewhere.

What device are you using (the PIC itself)?

If you answer some of those questions, I will talk you through and get you up and running.

Hope it helps,
Kevin

Sorry for the slow response - I am bogged down with homework :(

Anyway, you should be able to find asm code that will blink an LED for the part you have. Have you been in MPLAB and set the programmer to PicKit3 and see the device connected? If you set the programmer to PicKit3 (in MPLAB), it will look to see what device, if any, is connected to the PicKit3. Does the device show up?

What is the exact problem you are having?
