Hi,

I have downloaded the Bot Emulator from Github just like you mentioned but I am new to Node.js. How to you install or run
that project. I can't find any specific instructions on GitHub, please.

Thanks

Please would someone answer this as I'm in the same boat!
All it says is "Download and run the Bot Framework Emulator. See instructions for downloading here." but there's no information on actually running it and the Appendix hasn't yet been added to the MEAP edition of the book.

Firstly I want to thank you for buying the MEAP.

Here's a detailed article on running the bot framework emulator: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/bot-service/bot-service-debug-emulator

I will make sure to add this info in the next MEAP release

Thanks Akshay. What I did was click the link in the MEAP PDF which takes you to https://github.com/Microsoft/BotFramework-Emulator and that's the problem - because the emulator isn't there!
From the link you sent me, if you follow the releases link https://github.com/Microsoft/BotFramework-Emulator/releases there is the option to download the EXE https://github.com/Microsoft/BotFramework-Emulator/releases/download/v3.5.35/botframework-emulator-Setup-3.5.35.exe that can be installed, and then it all comes together.

Looking good; I've got as far as asking it how to do push-ups!
