This makes me remind of an old song that says "...strange thing, mistifying, that ...."
I've been using a Picit3 for more than a year without any kind of problems.
I work with 2 diferent setups, a laptop with Win7 Pro 64bits and a desktop with Win Vista Home Premium 32bits.
I have a mix of MPLAB 8.83, MPLAB 8.85, MPLAB-X 1.20 and MPLAB-X 1.10.
I've used about 10 diferent PICs, from 12F509 up tp 16LF1827, and also the PIC18 mcus from my PIC18 explorer board,.
Sometimes 3 diferent PICs in the same day (with firmware changes to the Pickit3 AP)
Some test circuits are powered by the Pickit3, others by external power.
Well, I could continue, but.....I think you already got the picture.
And not a glitch at all, either as a programmer or a debugger.
I can't say exactly the same about the ICD3. :(
