dsPIC33F, In Circuit Debugger (ICD2) crashes

Posted by Carlos Rendon on June 12, 2007
Has anyone experienced MPLAB crashing when programming the demo that comes with FreeRTOS on the Explorer 16 Dev Board but using the ICD2 as a debugger (not programmer)?

I basically execute the Debugger/Program option and after that
MPLAB is crashing. Here are the details. I would really appreciate if you can suggest what can I be doing wrong.

I have used several different MPLAB versions and it has always been rock solid. Maybe there is something upsetting in the USB driver? I would suggest uninstalling the ICD2 drivers, then re-installing them ensuring that you are using the latest version. If this does not help then perhaps re-installing all the MPLAB tools?

Sorry not to be able to offer anything more helpful.

Richard, thank you for your answer, I agree it was something related to my machine (IBM T60P) and the version of MPLAB (7.60a), once I upgraded to 7.61 the problem went away. Thanks again
