Message: 9 Mini-Restore ... foxhound5.db not found
Message: foxhound5.db not found ... 9 Mini-Restore
Message: Mini-Restore ... foxhound5.db not found

Explanation: The Foxhound 5 shortcut 9 - Mini-Restore contained a bug in the GA build 5.0.5432a: If the old foxhound5.db file doesn't exist, the script stops with this error message:

C:\ProgramData\RisingRoad\Foxhound5>ECHO OFF
Foxhound5 - 9 Mini-Restore
****************************************
CAUTION:
A Mini-Restore will restore an EMPTY
Foxhound database, with ONLY your
options and settings, but NO samples.
Are you sure you want to proceed?
Press any key to continue . . .
******************************************************************
*** ERROR ********************************************************
*** foxhound5.db not found...
*** "C:\ProgramData\RisingRoad\Foxhound5\foxhound5.db"
Press any key to continue . . .

To work around this bug in the Foxhound 5 GA build 5.0.5432a, create an empty foxhound5.db file in the Foxhound5 folder so the shortcut 9 - Mini-Restore will work OK.

C:\ProgramData\RisingRoad\Foxhound5>dir foxhound5.db
 Volume in drive C is OS
 Volume Serial Number is 5AB1-1BE1

 Directory of C:\ProgramData\RisingRoad\Foxhound5

02/17/2020  09:23 AM                 0 foxhound5.db
               1 File(s)              0 bytes
               0 Dir(s)  332,553,506,816 bytes free

...so the Foxhound 5 shortcut 9 - Mini-Restore will work OK:

C:\ProgramData\RisingRoad\Foxhound5>ECHO OFF
Foxhound5 - 9 Mini-Restore
****************************************
