Hi friend, its recommended to upgrade a firmware using a Pickit2 hardware tool, it is much more stable than a pirate loader
http://dangerousprototypes.com/docs/Bus ... re_updates)
Guess for Bus Pirate v3 its similar, just please note that BPv3 and BPv4 aren't compatible with each other
regarding the firmware/bootloader By the way its recommended to check out a new community firmware,
we are discussing it in this thread - viewtopic.php?f=28&t=8498

I am happy you have resolved your problem. In general, Linux is much more convenient for development than Windows
