Just for S&G, I searched on - pickit 3 not working in windows 10- no quotes and Google dutifully informed me that there are 20,700,000 hits.

Nevertheless, there are some links that look helpful, like the "hold the button down" when plugging it in and reinstall and even mess with the registry in this thread - https://www.microchip.com/forums/m936066.aspx

Be sure to tell us what ends up working for you.

Make sure you are using a recent version of MPLAB X. That will have the 64 bit drivers.

HI i read google i spent all night trying to get this working.

it comes up USB unrecognized

loaded up the software and it does not communicated with the computer

the  registry hack was mainly for windows 8 users.

i downloaded mp-lab IDE 3.50

just wondering what the setting would  be under devices .
as it says select drivers.

as a last resort i just order another new one.

but i have two pic-kit 3 with the same issues.

also tried it on windows 7 again does not work comes up with the same error

any other test i could try.

does this sound like the devices could be bricked


thank you

Could be a USB cable or hub problem.

The red USB cable that came with some of the PICkit3 was of rather poor quality.

Check with PICKit3 GUI application. Hardware maybe needs to be switched to MPlab mode.
I use pickit3 on windows64 several years and it is fine. MPLABX has some problems with PICKIT3 and some newer micros.
PicKit3 standalone GUI application will show you if the problem is in the hardware or into the software.

ugh maybe it is bricked. I still have mine, but it would sometimes become unreadable by win 7 and it would get fixed but I don't know how (tried so many things). Eventually, I went to PicKit 4 and have not (yet) had any problems. "i downloaded mp-lab IDE 3.50" - mplab x ide is at 5.40 btw. In any event GL!

@james101 Did you get this resolved? If so, what was the conclusion?

Make sure you're using a USB cable that's not just for charging. I was fighting with a curiosity dev board and was trying to use a cable that came with some other device that didn't have all the wires needed for communication, just charging. I switched to a different cable and it worked fine.
