When I try to update I get the following error:
"FoxTrot Professional Search can’t be updated when it’s running from a
read-only volume like a disk image or an optical drive. Move FoxTrot
Professional Search to your Applications folder, relaunch it from there,
and try again."
Foxtrot is already in my Applications folder. How can I solve this issue?
Best,
- Franjo

Maybe FoxTrot has been installed in the Applications folder from another macOS user account, and you do not have permissions to modify it.
Check and fix the permissions of the application file from the Finder's "Get Info" window, or run it from the user account that installed it.
Alternatively, you can download the application manually from our web site, and replace it in the Applications folder; the Finder will probably prompt for your administrator password to overwrite the previous version.

Fixing permissions via Get info solved the problem.
Thanks.

I also have the same issue after upgrading to FoxTrot 5.7. There's nothing
wrong with permissions. But worse is that FoxTrot server doesn't start,
and buttons to start and stop aren't enabled.

After a fresh re-installation (even re-entering the registration code),
FoxTrot Professional Search works fine *locally*, but both applications of
FoxTrot Server don't (Server doesn't start and Admin shows therefore
nothing).

Please let me know how to solve this. Thank you very much in advance.
