IPE won't connect with PicKit3
I have a problem with PicKit3 & mplab IPE (v3.00.02-beta) "Connection Failed"...
History: PK3 FW v2.00.05 (sure clone with zif socket adapter, win32 (xp))
Having previously programmed 12F685, 18F4550/2550, 16F876 with 'PicKit3 programmer v3.10.00' for some time with no problems.
But with a 16F1786 chip inserted I get "Unsupported Part (ID=2A60)" in device: field. & "No device detected" in output.
Download FW (PK3OSV020005.hex from PK3 programmer folder), says successful, reconnect ok, but still reports V2.00.05 in help about. ? Retry mplab IPE but still "Connection Failed" error.
Problem with IPE
Decided to install latest IPE v3.00.02-beta, when PicKit3 is USB plugin, it comes up in Tool: so it can see the PK3, but when click on Connect I get "Connection Failed".
Same error "Connection Failed" if I try to manually update PK3 FW from PK3FW_013610.jam
Any suggestions what to now...
I can't find an update for Pickit3 Programmer for later supported device , I did have a "Real" PK3 but gave it away (cant substitute test)
