The above mentioned files can be downloaded from: http://www.palmos.com/dev/tools/emulator/index.html
- Emulator Application
Emulates the hardware of the various models of Palm Powered handhelds.
- ROM Image file
The Emulator does not include ROM images. When you pick a ROM image, the Emulator will give you the option to pick the device you want to emulate from the devices that could use that ROM. There are also two types of ROM image files: debug and non-debug versions. Use the debug ROMs to develop trouble-free software. To download the ROM images you must be a member of the Palm OS Developer Program and sign an agreement with Palm Inc.
- Emulator Skins (optional)
The Emulator Application comes with a built-in Generic skin. But if you want to make the Emulator cosmetically look like the device you are emulating you can download the emulator skins file.
