Question: How do I do a quick reinstall and reactivation of Foxhound?
Question: How do I quickly shrink the Foxhound database?
Question: How do I reset my Foxhound database to empty, without reinstalling?

Answer: If you have your activation key handy, and if you don't mind losing all your Foxhound data (samples, option settings, everything)...

simply copy and rename the *.ORIGINAL_COPY file from the Foxhound setup subfolder 

to replace the *.db file in the Foxhound folder.

Here are the steps...

1. Stop Foxhound.

2. Open the folder C:\ProgramData\RisingRoad\Foxhound*

3. Delete or rename these files 
      foxhound*.db         - must be deleted or renamed for the reinstall to work
      foxhound*.log        - must be deleted or renamed for the reinstall to work
      patch*.*             - delete or rename these files IF they exist AND you don't want these patches reapplied

4. Copy and rename this file:  C:\ProgramData\RisingRoad\Foxhound*\setup\foxhound*.ORIGINAL_COPY
         ...up one level, to:  C:\ProgramData\RisingRoad\Foxhound*\foxhound*.db 

5. Start Foxhound.

6. If the patch*.* file(s) exist, wait for Foxhound to apply them and stop, and then start Foxhound again.

7. Provide the activation key when requested.
