Multiple ICD3s using Command Line

Hello
For the last 3 years we used Labview and Command script to program the switches using ICD3. Unfortunately it takes 23 sec each program. Just recently we changed a chip to use a Microchip PIC18LF26K40 chip for one of our new joysticks. This takes program time to sometimes 1 min each. To counter this program time problem we wanted to run 2 ICD3s at the same time. The GUI has the option to select the device.  Is there a way to select the ICD3 using command line.

    You should be able to specify icd3 using serial number too. Check the documentation.

    I read the documents found in v3.15 v4.20 and v5.05.
    There is no mention of ICD3 tool selection

    I think NorthGuy's programmers could do it in about 5 seconds.

    I also post at: PicForum
    Links to useful PIC information: http://picforum.ric323.co...opic.php?f=59&t=15

    To get a useful answer, always state which PIC you are using!

    5 sec is very close. It is 3.8 sec:

    However. It'll be faster if you do not program EEPROM, which is very slow to program compared to program flash.

    From Readme for IPECMD.htm, 

    T
    P = Tool Selection E.g. –TPRICE for MPLAB REAL ICE –TPPK3 for PICKIT 3
    S = Specific Tool Selection using Serial No, E.g. TSBUR1234566
    Short Name for Tools:
    MPLAB REAL ICE   –  RICE
    MPLAB ICD 4    -  ICD4
    MPLAB ICD 3        –  ICD3
    MPLAB PICkit 4   –  PK4
    PICKIT 3   –  PK3
    MPLAB PM3         –  PM3
    PKOB    -  PKOB
