      C:\ProgramData\RisingRoad\Foxhound5\$start_foxhound5_engine.bat
    

  • Insert this line
      -f^
    

    as shown below:

    "!SQLANY17!\!BIN!\dbspawn.exe"^
      -f "!SQLANY17!\!BIN!\dbsrv17.exe"^
      -c 25p^
      -ch 50p^
      -cr-^

  • Run Start - Foxhound5 - 14 Start Foxhound Engine

  • It should start the Foxhound database, create a new Foxhound transaction log file, and then shut down.

  • Re-edit the $start_foxhound5_engine.bat file to remove the -f^ line, then start Foxhound normally.
