MCC configuration for the Explorer 16/32

Anyone prepared an MCC configuration for the Explorer 16/32?  Working on a demo project and using the Explorer 16/32 development board.  Would really help to have an MCC configuration file available so I don't need to reverse-engineer the Explorer 16/32 to set pin functions and appropriately set configuration bits.  These functions would be slightly different depending on the PIM.

There are two options for demo code on this page, choose the second "8/29/2016" for MCC examples

You don't mention which 16-bit or 32-bit controller you will use so it seems unlikely that anyone would create the MCC configuration file just for you.
 
The pin connections from the controller to the Explorer 16/32 PIM connector are not always one to one so Microchip has left it up to each developer to complete the documentation to verify which physical pin of the controller is actually connected to Explorer 16/32 resource. This is a tedious task and nobody where I work likes the way I do it.
 
The sample code from Microchip for the 16-bit controller PIMs for the Explorer 16/32 (DM240001-3) are hard from me to comprehend but maybe useful to you.

Well, worth a shot.  When you say, "Just for me", I wonder how many others use the PIC24FJ1024GB610 PIM.  Microchip has all the Explorer 16/32 design files, so it would not be near as tedious for them to create the configuration as for us users.  The example code demos the LCD, LED, and slide potentiometer but does not use files in MCC format.

I request you to use the Board Support Library http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/boardSupportLibrary-1.0.0.mc3lib which will allow you to generate the code for the Explorer 16/32 boards and few other boards as well , Board Support Library will auto-configure the pins for you.
