ICD3/ICD4 not detected by MPLAB 4 / 4.01

I have a strange problem with the current MPLAB builds.
 
I have different versions on my PC as they all have their own bugs and advantages, however, currently I am using 3.51, 4.00 and 4.01. I have the problem of 4.00 not recognizing any of my debug tools.
I have removed the drivers, then reinstalled them from the driver switcher directory inside the 4.00 and 4.01 directory, but this does not change anything.
The old version of MPLAB X as well as the old IPE (both 3.51) will detect and use the tools (tested with two different ICD3).
The current versions will not list any of my tools within the selection window.
Device manager shows the device properly connected.
What else can I try?

    You can try clearing the two cache folders. They are listed in the about box.

    I've just tried clearing those folders. Next start of MPLAB took about one minute but the tools are still not recognised.
    Just to mention: I have UAC disabled on this machine.

    Hi,
    Which OS do you use ?
    How old is your PC ?
    Did you recently install any graphics driver update or antivirus ?
    Do you connect the ICD3/ICD4 directly to your PC USB connector (not through an external USB hub) ?
    Did you try to connect to different USB connectors on your PC (some may be USB 3.0 some USB 3.1)
    Regards

    Sorry for replying with a delay, but I've been out of office.
     
    I'm using Windows 7 64 Bit. My computer is pretty up to date, featuring a core i7-6950X, 16GB of ram and some other fancy hardware. I'm using a USB3 port directly connected to my Mainboard. I've tried front and rear ports, that does not make any difference. I do not have any USB2 ports to try on.
     
    But as I mentioned before:
    The ICD3 runs fine with older MPLAB X versions installed on the same computer. It is detected correctly and working as expected. All my ICDs show up correctly in device manager without issues.
    However, when running MPLAB IPE or X in version 4 or greater, the device list is completely empty.
    There must be something else going wrong...

    I thought all motherboards had at least 1 or 2 usb2 ports on the rear.
    I found pickit 3 used to work with usb3 then it didn't with different versions of mplab x.
     
    mplab x - it's a "constant" battle.
     

    MPLab X playing up, bug in your code? Nevermind, Star Trek:Discovery will be with us soon.

    Unfortunately, this is a Supermicro mainboard and it doesn't have any USB2 Port.
    I had some fun with this when installing Windows 7 as this doesn't have native USB3 support and I had to integrate some drivers first.
    I don't really believe this is an usb issue, maybe drivers or some broken configuration due to upgrading.
    Would be really helpful if microchip could look into this case as I do not really enjoy reinstalling my dev-pc with all the software that's on it...

    I have the same issue with MPLAB X v4.00 and v4.01 previous versions worked fine. I am using Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, Intel Xeon CPU 3.6GHz, 8GB RAM, HP Z420 Workstation. Was this issue resolved?

    Well, it started working out of a sudden. I don't know how long it will last and I haven't tested my new ICD4 so far. But my ICD3 was recognized yesterday. Seems like you have a pretty similar system. Also Socket 2011?

    Noticed on MPLABX 4.XX the platform Tool SN is missing in the ProjectName.X\nbproject\private\configurations.xml file.
    Adding  the following in your  ProjectName.X\nbproject\private\configurations.xml file adds the debug tool SN in the Dashboard but still doesn’t connect if that is any help.
