I have a PICkit 3 with a "PICkit 44-Pin Demo Board". To get the demo board to function I need to either disable the MCLR (
#pragma config MCLRE = OFF) or put a pull up on the pin, as the PICkit leaves it floating unless in debug mode.
Is there a way of getting the PICkit to drive this pin high? Do I have a faulty PICkit (got it second hand) as I don't see anything about having to use a pull up in the demo board manual?
