P&E USB Driver Licensing Issue
. Sep 8, 2015 at 07:47 AM (07:47 hours)
Staff: Johnny N.

  • Everything has been working previously, then;

    While in the Debugger mode an information box pops us displaying,
    "There is a P&E USB Driver Licensing issue on your machine. I was then directed to download and install the latest driver from;

    I have recently uninstalled and reinstalled all Kinetics, the Win Drivers, PEDrivers_Install.... They are all up to date and working!!!

    I have a Windows 10 operating system, could that be a problem?

    But this window continues to pop up, I saw on a forum there was a patch or something, does anybody know???

  • Let's work to resolve the issue in the support ticket you opened in our system. Once we have a resolution we can post it here for the public.



  • Hello, 

    I have the same problem on Win7.

    Had a Codewarrior 6.3 running, then installed PROG12Z and PROGHCS08 Software in order to program freescale microcontrollers in production without using Codewarrior.

    Even re-installed Codewarrior, still got the issue..


  • Hello,

    I have same problem too.

    I am using CW 10.4 on Win 10 64bit and in debug session opens same popup.
    Tryied reinstall drivers, cw nothing changed.



  • There is a known issue with P&E Drivers and Windows 10. We are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible. 

    At the latest, there will be a new version of P&E Drivers that supports Windows 10 by Friday September 25th.



    • Thanks for great news



  • Please resolve it A.S.A.P  !!!!!!!!!!
    I don’t want to reinstall back to windows 7
    It will be great to inform us when it will be resolved.
    Thanks in advance

  • Good to hear there is a Win10 driver on the way, as I have just encountered this problem too.  It has been working fine running Win 10 64 bit until this morning.  There was a security update installed (KB3081455) which I have uninstalled, but still get the same message - so I'm not sure if it's related.

  • Hi All,

    Attached is a patch for Windows 10 and P&E Drivers.

    Please remove all P&E hardware from your machine and close all P&E/Freescale software and install the above patch. Reconnect your devices/restart your programs and the issue should be resolved.



    • Hello Kevin;
      On first run it works!!
      Let’s hope that it solves the problem

  • Hey,
    Thank you so much!!
    All working great!

  • Windows 10 is now supported in the main P&E installer:

    • Same licensing issue has re-appeared, after fixing it last year. (I think there has been an automatic windows 10 maintenance.)
      Now when I run the above file (id=301) i get "Cannot run an x86 build of this utility on a x64 platform".

      Also the link to download_id=460 is non existent.

      • P.S. To the above. I've also tried to run Drivers_v_install.exe in compatibility mode and get the same "Cannot run an x86 build of this utility on a x64 platform".

  • Steven,

    That is the incorrect link. It must have changed since the post.

    Please try the following installer:

    I am not sure why the message has reappeared for you.



  • Mark,
    I've installed that driver version - same result "There is a P&E USB Driver Licensing issue on your machine."

    Everyting was working a couple of weeks ago. I've tried uninstalling and deleting the jungo drivers before installing. same result.

    • I've tried the patch in FAQ 211, but that results in the "Error while writing to E000..E200. Information: Access denied (target running)" when I run the debugger. I'm using CW6.3 and the MCU is MC9S08QG8.

    • Sorry Kevin,
      I don't know where I got mark from.

  • Steven,

    I believe the reason you are getting the licensing issue is that you are using an older version of code warrior.

    The patch is the best way to resolve this issue. I would be happy to remote into your machine and help you get the patch up and running.



    • Thanks Kevin,

    • Thanks Kevin,

    • Kevin,
      It works! What I did wrong before was that I renamned the PE folder, instead of making a copy, before adding the patches.

      Thanks again

  • I'm in Australia and am at work until 5pm our time. When I get home I will try reinstalling CW_MCUV6_3_SE downloaded  8/7/2016 and patch it with VW63_patch_S08.RS08, according to the instructions therin. I'll let you know how I get on. 


  • Hey,

    I'm seeing a similar problem showing that the access is denied and I believe I am using up to date installer and drivers. Is there something else that I need to install?

    Thanks for any help!

    • Zuhaer,

      Can you send a screenshot of the error message and the specifications of your PC to
