Lost ICD driver

I had the ICD and MPLAB set up on my PC for development in the past and everything was working fine. I'm now returning to do some additional firmware development but get the 'Found New Hardware Wizard' everytime I plug in the ICD. What's the right way to recover from this?

    Strange once a driver is installed on cable the balloon shouldn't appear any more Try to unload if there are any left behind by
    http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/usb_devices_view.html

    Which mplab are you using maybe the driver files are changed
    I looked up at C:\Program Files\Microchip\MPLAB IDE\ICD2\Drivers
    bot *.sys files are at 1.0.0 version they won't be updated then because they are from 22-3-2004grin

    Hi tracebender,

    I have seen this behavior also - Although I don't know what the root cause is.
    I found that if you connect the ICD2 to a different USB port than the one you were connected to, when the driver was installed, it will trigger the "New Hardware Wizard".

    The problem could be there are two driver that Win XP wants to use. The next time Win Xp wants to install ICD 2 drivers select manual and point to C:\Program Files\Microchip\MPLAB IDE\ICD2\Drivers ; press next.  You might see more then one driver.  I saw oem60.inf and icd2w2k.inf. You want icd2w2k.inf.
    Cancel and go to c:\windows\inf  and delete oem60.inf and oem60.PNF.  Now plug the ICD 2 back in and each time have it look at
    C:\Program Files\Microchip\MPLAB IDE\ICD2\Drivers.  This should fix it.

    The ICD2's USB driver, or maybe the ICD2 itself, seems to have some incompatibility with Windows.  You may have to un-install and clean up some things then install the correct driver.  Someplace under the MPLAB installation directory, perhaps in the ICD2 folder, there is an html document that tells you how to do this.  I think it's also mentioned in the MPLAB Release Notes for the ICD2.

    Thanks for all the info. It does appear that windows sees two drivers available. I don't remember changing usb ports but it could have happened. I just went through the install wizard and pointed it to the proper driver in the mplab folder and all seems to be happy again. I'll have to find some time to find and read the notes and see if I can clean up and get rid of these extra drivers. Has anyone switched from ICD to real ice? Is it stable? I have one sitting on my desk that I just started to use a little. Maybe loading the driver for this got the ICD drivers confused.
