VEX and Assembly or PICBASIC

I have Picbasic and the MPLAB but am wondering if anyone else has gotten asm files to work. I haven’t played with it much, but would like to know if others have had experience with assembly. I can go from picbasic, to assembly to a hex file, but have trouble getting it to work. I might just have the include files wrong.

I want to use picbasic, because its easy and i know it. I don’t know C very well (i could learn, but don’t have time) and i already use picbasic for my oopic board with a 16f877a and would like to continue using the same program.

Thanks in advance. Travis
