Foxtrot Legacy — all versions

Unlike Foxtrot, Foxtrot Legacy requires an established emulator connection and a loaded database.

Before you Begin

  • Verify that you have read, write, and modify permissions to the proper HLLAPI path. Typically, this is located in the same (if not a relative) folder as the emulators HLLAPI path. If you’re unsure on the location of this path, Foxtrot will display it in the Emulator Path in Step 5 below
  • Verify that the emulator is running
  • Verify that the emulator has a valid Short Name. The steps for setting up a Short Name for your emulator can be found in the Foxtrot Legacy Emulator Setup Help document, located in your Foxtrot Suite directory
