Well, so I soldered the PIC on, and connected the wires. I use the programmer from SparkFun: HERE
According to them and to here, I connected all wires correctly, but the tinybld says "COM 1 found, PIC not found". There are no solder leaks/bridges, and there is voltage at the pins of the PIC.
1) Can someone tell me what voltage at what pins should i have?
2) What else do I need to check???
3) Could the problem be with the computer/software?
Thanks for any help!!!
