core chipKit location in UECIDE

Post by FredCailloux » Sat Mar 12, 2016 6:03 pm

After I installed UECIDE I went to Preferences\Cores\chipKit and found these two folder locations:
Location of ipecmd.jar: C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microchip\\MPLABX\\mplab_ipe\\ipecmd.jar
Location of mdb.jar: C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microchip\\MPLABX\\mplab_ide\\lib\\mdb.jar
Why are Microchip MPLABX file locations ended up in my UECIDE installation preferences ?
Is it because I had installed MPLAB-X before installing UECIDE ?
If so, does that have an impact of some kind on compilation ?
What are those files utilized for ?
Thanks

The first you can ignore, it is redundant. The second is the Microchip Debugger and is used to allow programming with things like a pickit3. If you have mplab-x installed you can search for that mdb.jar file to allow the mdb programmer to work.
