did you install ?
Microsoft .Net Framework V4.0
Microsoft VC++ 2010 (x86)
I have the same problem. I ordered my p3free stick from ic2005 and both ic2005 and Patrick confirmed I have version f1 hardware firmware that should be USB upgradeable. I installed both of the two Microsoft packages\.net 4.0 required and my USB dongle is still not recognized by the HID Bootloader program.
you need press the RESET button if you want it enter BTL mode!
Yes I followed that guide step for step and did everything exactly as it was specified in the instruction and the HID bootloader did not recognize the p3free. The progress bar goes have way across but stalls there and the device is never fully recognized.
First install ur picprogrammer into ur serial port.

Use a program called picpgm programmer to flash ur device with the bootloader only.
Then connect ur device into the usb port and it should recognize it and then u flash it with firmware of ur choosing.
I don't have a picprogrammer. Version F1 should be USB upgradeable without a picprogrammer. If I need a pic programmer how do I get one?
if you did not receive the pic programmer, it is my understanding that you are entitled to get one for free. you need to contact either Patrick or the place you purchased from to get it.
you are correct that the device is usb upgradable, however if you mess up the bootloader, you need to reflash it via the programmer. after that you can flash the new hex via usb.
The place I purchased it from, iC2005, keeps telling me to post something on psx-scene/p3free, so i'm running out of options
well then PM Patrick your order number and let him know that you still need the programmer.
he'll set you up.
