PIC18F26K83 Operation in Curiosity HPC dev Board

I have this PIC MCU installed in the dev board (Curiosity HPC, pn: 164136) recommended on the Microchip web site. I am connecting to the board over USB and the board mounted on USB fine, according to Win10, my operating sys. I'm trying to connect to the board, with a blank PIC installed, and starting a project using MPLAB X, v 4.05.  When I launch a new project, using this PIC device as the processor, the system shows the Curiosity HPC red-dotted (ie, not supported).
Has anybody else seen this? I'm a newbie with both the MCU and the dev environment, so any suggestions or approaches to solving the problem would be appreciated!

    I use this micro with pickit3.
    with MPLAB X v4.00, it doesn't work, but when I upgrade to v4.10 it's connecting and programming correctly.
    first, I used MPLAB IPE 4.10 to connect to the pickit3 and update the internal firmware, then I used MPLABX to program device.
    hope it will work for you.
    BTW, do you have any code example of PIC18F26K83? how to configure and how to get its periphecals working...

    PIC18F26K83 is a very very recent PIC, that is why you need to use the latest MPLAB X version ;=)
    PIC18F26K83 is mostly similar to many other PIC18s.
    1/ Read the datasheet
    2/ Use the tutorials on
    3/ Google for PIC18F26K22 and PIC18F26K80 the code is mostly reusable.
