Thanks for the help!
Seems to me that this was a rather-extreme example of an horribly-misleading error message. Imho, it takes a quite-good developer to create software that is very unlikely to create such messages. As I see it, after some years in this business, you develop some skepticism about error messages, and sometimes can suspect that they might be bogus. Anybody who's done a significant amount of programming might agree.

bhartman36 has been wonderfully helpful here; it would be wrong not to note that!

Local Rite Aid apparently got in a new stock of Android netbooks. i do hope people are having better luck with those!

My best to all,
