Issue debugging curiosity board

EE student here new to PIC. Recently purchased the LPC curiosity board from microchip, the board uses the PKoB4 programmer. Wrote a very simple program to turn one of it's LED's on but it wont upload to the board and I get these errors instead:
 
Under the PKoB4 tab
"Failed to get Device ID. Please make sure the target device is attached and try the operation again.
Connection Failed.
Transmission on endpoint 2 failed"
 
Under the project build tab
"Connecting to programmer...
The programmer could not be started: null"
 
I'm using MPLabX and the i have turned on low voltage programming mode. How do i fix this issue. On the users guide for the demo board, it says if the PKoB4 does not perform then use the "Hardware tool emergency boot firmware recovery utility" feature in MPLab. I haven't done this yet as I don't want to damage anything further, still new to this. Can anyone help?

    Check out the other posts related to "noID" or missing connection tools (https://www.microchip.com/forums/m1141583.aspx).  I think they are all related and the problems have something to do with the firmware in the PK0B4 device.  I have an active ticket going with Microchip on this and I will post any results that they give me.
