ERROR: Initialization failed: Unable to create ControlPointMediator

Hello, 
I'm unable to use IPS, because when trying to connect to ICD3 or PICKit3, the following error message appears:
 
Initialization failed: Unable to create ControlPointMediator
 
I already tried all the steps stated on ICD3 user's guide, as uninstalling completelly all mplabx, rebooting the machine... Nothing works. 
 
Any clues?

Which version of IPE and which device you are using?

Sorry, forgot to add the info. 
 
It started when I installed 5.0, but after uninstalling it compeltely and instaling 5.05, the problem persists. I'm on windows 10. 
For the devices I tried 2 different ICD3 and a pickit3.

ICD3 and PICkit3 are the debugger tools and not devices. I suppose you are using some PIC or dsPIC device.

Hi please try selecting the device name from Combo Box instead of typing device name.

Thank you very much, is works now! This is bug wasn't present on versions before 5.0, as I was used to type the device in.

I have found when typing in the name the list in the combo box gets shorter and closer to the device I want, and then I select the device from the combo box.

Hi I am getting this mysterious error as well now on IPE
trying to connect to a PIC18F25K80 via an ICD-3.
 
I wonder what 

Initialization Failed: Unable to create ControlPointMediator 

actually means.
I have tried a different ICD-3, powering the target device with 5V, and chnod'ing with 777 the /dev/bus/usb 
but wonder what else might fix this

AH OK. Reading above I think I see what happened. If you type the target processor name in *yourself*
it does not get chosen from the drop down list.
The action of being chosen from the drop down list must load the processor type into the IPE.
OK. I kind of get what probably happened.
But the error message is VERY misleading!
