I have posted a compiled TinyBootloader hex file for the 18F4550 that can be loaded onto the PIC chip using the PICPgm Development Program and a hardware programmer. Then the main winder program can be loaded on the microcontroller with the Tiny BootLoader program running on your computer using a serial port and serial port module or a usb port and a usb to serial converter board.
To the right is a screenshot of the oscillator configuration settings (the first four configs) used if you are using the tiny bootloader or programming the main winder program directly onto the microchip with a program like the PICPgm Programmer and a hardware programmer.
You can find more information on the PIC18F4550 oscillator configuration settings on page 24 of the PIC18F4550 manufacturers data sheet.
I have also included a screenshot of the Tiny BootLoader program version 1.98 that I use to load my winder program.
When using the Tiny Bootloader software you need to make sure you have the correct com port selected and the communications speed set to 115200.
