PIC Microchip MPLAB ICD2 Setup FAQ

When I try to download the OS for IDC2, fails when I use the serial port. What's wrong?

Chances are your serial setup is wrong.   

  • Select Control panel, System, Hardware Tab, Device manager, Ports, COM1,Port Settings Tab. 
    • Select Flow Control Hardware.
    • Select Advanced. Turn off "Use Fifo Buffers".
    • IMPORTANT !!! You must now reboot for the settings to take effect.. (This is not mentioned in the ICD2 user guides.)
