I forgot to mention that I used an APK export utility to get the compiler APK from my S5 and then installed that APK onto my Asus x86 tablet. I don't know if that makes a difference. I couldn't install it from the store because it thinks it is not compatible with the tablet, even though it's licensed to me through my store account. Well, back to trying to learn the dsPIC33E architecture. As for my current bench experimental DSP lashup, I'll share a phrase from an old engineering friend of mine. This got used whenever the boss pressed for an update on whatever project had the team exasperated.
"How's it going? Well, it almost sorta maybe kinda works."
Spoken rapidly enough, it almost sounds reassuring.
Your stuff: Works great!
My bench project: Well, it almost sorta maybe kinda works.
