Part 1: How to register Foxwell NT680 Pro / Lite
Step 1. Create an account
You firstly need to create an account with Foxwell and register your tool.
This must be done through the FoxAssist update software.
Browse https://www.foxwelltech.us/, click on “Products, then “NT680 Pro”, scroll down until you can see “Download” and click on ” FoxAssistSetup_V1.04.010.exe” to download in a few seconds.
The file downloaded will be a compressed zip file.
Open that file and run the installer inside it.
Please note: the installer will also install a Microsoft Visual C++ runtime – this is required for the software to run. It may require a Windows restart after installation before first use.
Once installed (following a Windows restart if required), open the FoxAssist software.
– Click the Register button.
On the registration form:
– Fill in your email address and your choice of password.
– Then press the ‘Send Code’ button, and wait for a confirmation message.
This will immediately email you a verification code (valid for 10 minutes) to confirm the email address is correct.
** Do NOT press the button more than once, as each press generates a new code, invalidating the previous one – it may take up to 10 seconds for the confirmation message to appear **
– Check your email for that code, enter it, then click the Free Registration button to complete registration.
– Once the details are accepted you will be returned to the main screen.
– Enter your email address and password, then click ‘Sign In’.
