[aprssig] Parallel Port PIC programming Help

Hi, 
I am looking for some help with the programming of 16f628a PIC 

PC is a Toshiba 2140 CDS laptop running WIN2000 Pro
 
I have a FoxDelta PIC Parallel programmer pre assembled 
http://products.foxdelta.com/icp.htm#icp 
 
I have tried WINPICPROG V 1.95 beta and Oshonsoft software and have asked
both questions 
with no results  the beta version is for the (a version chip )

I have the parallel port driver loaded

I am trying to up grade to aprs tracker code V0 11 
http://sharon.esrac.ele.tue.nl/~pe1icq/projects/aprstacker.shtml

Reason for upgrade is that the FD version has no Altitude showing and I feel
that the smart beaconing rate is to slow for our road speed
and is more suited to EU 

I have tried every thing on the above software sites and tried all the 
different combinations of settings 
 
I have replaced the 74HC14 chip on the PIC board checked voltages etc 
 
Started with 13.8 Vlts regulated up to 18vlts 
 
How do I tell if the PIC is damaged internally ?

Is there anyone using a Parallel programmer if so what program are you using
etc..

Any Help suggestions appreciated 

73 Phillip
