Message: Only the Extended edition of Foxhound can be started with a SQL Anywhere server name other than "foxhound5".
Message: Foxhound can only be started with the SQL Anywhere database name set to "f".

Explanation:

Short answer: Use "foxhound5" and "f" as the SQL Anywhere server and database names for Foxhound.

Long answer...

The SQL Anywhere server name must be set to "foxhound5" for the Rental Edition and Basic Edition of Foxhound, and the SQL Anywhere database name must be set to "f" for all editions of Foxhound.

For example, the server name option "-n foxhound5" and database name option "-n f" are the standard settings that appear in all the installed shortcuts that start Foxhound.

The SQL Anywhere server name may be set to something other than "foxhound5" for the Extended Edition to allow multiple instances of Foxhound to be started on the same computer.

Note: This freedom to use any server name extends to the "GA" edition of Foxhound, where "GA" is the edition name given to a copy of Foxhound that has not been activated yet. In this case it is expected that Foxhound will be activated as a new Extended Edition copy.

If a "GA" copy of Foxhound is running with a SQL Anywhere server name other than "foxhound5", and an attempt is made to activate it with anything other than a "New Extended Edition" key, that attempt will fail.
