For example by using the Project Wizard of MPLAB IDE v8.92, after selecting the MCU you have to specify the language toolsuite. In that step you select the CCS C Compiler option in the Active Toolsuite selection. Here the Toolsuite content shows CCS C Compiler application(.exe) with red cross as shown below-

This means that either the compiler is not installed or the plugin was not installed.

Mostly the CCS C compiler have plugin tool and it will be automatically installed and you don't have to download the plugin separately as described in this post.

The next time you start the Project Wizard you will then see the CCS C compiler listed in the Active Toolsuite window.

Now, you can continue to work with your desired CCS C compiler in MPLAB.
