I am not able to program PIC18f67K90 with PICKit2

The program builds successfully in MPLAB IDE v8.36

But when I try to select the programmer PICKit2, I get the PK2Error0025: Failed to load PICkit2
and PK2Error0035: Failed to retrieve XML Data(node = %s)

The program involving PIC18f87J90 built successfully in MPLAB IDE v8.36 and the programmer PICkit2 worked fine too.

Please let me know how I can get rid of that error?

I tried to uninstall and install MPLAB but still couldn't make it work.

In the MPLAB IDE 8.36
it does show PICkit2 highlighted in the programmer tab

few other programmers were not highlighted

I'm up to MPLAB v8.83, and that version shows the PICkit 2 is DOES NOT SUPPORT the PIC18f67K90.

The PICkit 3 is green and good to go.

None of the newer Microchip parts are ever going to be supported by the PICkit2. I fully expect to have to buy a PICkit3 at some point myself, but have not yet built anything with an unsupported MCU. Probably my next project though.
