Problem with MAXREFDES100 Health Sensor Platform

Hi, I've got problem with Platform to MAXREFDES100. I try to use LED on this board and it's okay. Then I install program "HSP_RPC_GUI" and when I try to run a program "MAXREFDES100 Health Sensor Platform" nothings happen. I can only see that computer "thinking" and that's it. The same with platform on Android. I can run platform on Android but I can't see my board. But if I run program "STM32 BLE" on Android I can see my board MAXREFDES100.

What should I do to run Platform on Windows.

I try do that on Windows and Linux, the effect is the same.

I don't know why but when I try to download the android app MAXREFDES100 from the Maxime's web site : https://www.maximintegrated.com/en/design/reference-design-center/system-board/6312.html/tb_tab2

They send me at this webpage and I can't find the app.

Hello Emilian,

I am having the same issue. Did you find a way around it?

Hello Cian & Emilian,

I haved tested the HSP for a few hours with the included Android app and found that the Bluetooth connection only works with Android 4.X.X devices. Android 6.X and above do not work. I was not able to test the app with Android 5.X devices.

To work on android 6+ its necessary to add permissions on the manifest of the app and request permission on run time. This the way i modify the source files of android app provided by Maxim.

<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH" /> <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.BLUETOOTH_ADMIN" /> <uses-permission android:name="android.permission.ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION" />

Also it is necessary to turn on the Location (IMPORTANT). It needs this to find devices
