Because you refer to PCW, I'm curious how you are using CCS' compiler.
It can be used as it's own IDE, in which case I don't know the hook to
MPLAB.  Or you can use MPLAB as the IDE - then MPLAB knows to invoke the
CCS compiler at compile time.  In this case, you are using either
PCM (14 bit) or PCB (12 bit); there is no PCW choice.  I use the latter
setup, and have never experienced a problem like what you are describing.
I have two situations that can occasionally lock things up, but neither
is "permanent" as you describe yours to be:
- when MPLAB expects the emulator and the emulator is missing
- when the processor type doesn't agree between the IDE and any given
 project

After you've rebuilt the entire environment, what happens if you
remove the (apparently) offending comment line, and re-compile?

More ideas.

In Windows, sometimes you get a dialog box (with an OK button in it)
but some other window covers it up so you can't see it.  Then
nothing will proceed until you click the OK (but  you can't see it).
You have to figure out how to get back to the box...in my case,
I look down at the task bar and see the CCS icon there which
will bring it to the front.

Also when MPLAB kicks off the command to the compiler it will show
you the command line it uses.  You can try this by itself from
a DOS window and see if the compiler itself has some problem.

Finally, with the setup I have, MPLAB eventually puts up a window
saying that it's tired of waiting, and should it proceed.  So you
can have Windows waiting for MPLAB which is waiting for PCW/PCM/PCB.

I like the suggestion about take the // line out and see if it
works again.  I get stuck on all kinds of things and I just keep
throwing things at it until I get some results, then go back and
figure out what made it happy.  Today I think I discovered that
integers are 8-bits.  A good thing to know!
