Message: SQLANY17 environment variable not set properly.
Message: ERROR SQLANY17 environment variable not set properly.

Explanation: Foxhound requires SQL Anywhere 17 to run its own database.

C:\ProgramData\RisingRoad\Foxhound5>ECHO OFF
Foxhound5 - 1 Start Foxhound
******************************************************************
*** ERROR ********************************************************
*** SQLANY17 environment variable not set properly.
*** Install SQL Anywhere 17.
Press any key to continue . . .

The SQLANY17 environment variable is optional, but by default it is used by the delivered *.bat files. Either perform a standard installation of SQL Anywhere 17 to get SQLANY17 set up, or edit the *.bat files to replace references to SQLANY17.

If you have recently installed SQL Anywhere 17, the SQLANY17 environment variable may not yet be visible to your Windows session for some unknown reason. Try using Control Panel to view the environment variables to make them visible: Control Panel - System - Advanced System Settings - Environment Variables - System Variables

If the system PATH variable is too long, one of the symptoms may be that the SQLANY17 environment variable is not visible to your Windows session. To fix this condition, launch the C:\Windows\System32\SystemPropertiesAdvanced.exe program and use

Environment Variables... 
   - System Variables 
   - select Path 
   - Edit...
to remove duplicate or unnecessary entries from the system PATH.
