To activate the 6507 symbolic debugger, run the file 2600EMU.EXE. Pitfall will come up with an additional Debug item on the menu bar. You can then single step through the code, change registers, generate interrupts, examine memory, and so on. Note that many features are disabled, it only runs Pitfall, and this is only available in the original Windows 3.1 version.
