Explanation: You have to run the Foxhound "unsetup" process before reinstalling Foxhound 5, or before installing a new build.

If you forget, you may see one of these dialog boxes when you run the Foxhound setup; this is a limitation of the way the InstallShield setup for Foxhound 5 is constructed:

Another version of this product is already installed.

Modify, repair, or remove the program.

Do not click on Modify or Repair; they won't damage anything, but nothing will happen when you click on the Post-Setup button at the end of Modify or Repair process.

There are three ways to run the Foxhound 5 unsetup process:

  • Click on start - All Programs - Foxhound5 - 10 Unsetup Foxhound, or
  • use the Control Panel - Add or Remove Programs dialog to remove Foxhound Version 5, or

  • run this command: MsiExec.exe /X{B0FE1886-2DBE-4269-8EBD-2A3EF45C4EF5}

The unsetup process doesn't actually delete the existing database file foxhound5.db; that file is overwritten after the data is upgraded (copied) during the post-setup process when you reinstall Foxhound.

Here's what you see when you click on start - All Programs - Foxhound5 - Tools - Unsetup Foxhound:

Unsetup Foxhound Version 5
