PICKit 3 works fine with PICKIT 3 v3.10 but not with MPLAB
I have one PC and one laptop, both Window 10, 64 bits.
I installed MPLAB v5.25 on both and the older software Pickit 3 v3.10 on the laptop.
Programming my PIC16F1847 is correctly done with the Pickit 3 v3.10 software. However, on the same laptop MPLAB X IPE does see the PICKIT 3 at all?????
On the PC, the MPLAB IPE sees the PicKit 3 tool, but power target circuit from PM3 does not power the microchip. And loading the hex file into the microchip resulted in the message the target must be powered externally. But neither power from the Pickit 3 tool, neither from external power help to down load the hex file. It fails.
In all cases I used MPLAB as administrator.
What can I do?
