Question: Why isn't the new value of the FOXHOUND5 environment variable available immediately after Foxhound is installed?
Question: How do I get the new value of the FOXHOUND5 environment variable to show up after Foxhound is installed?

Answer:

The FOXHOUND5 environment variable may not be properly set by the InstallShield setup until you (a) reboot or (b) open and close Environment Variables in Control Panel. If necessary, you can reboot to put the new value into effect, or you just use Control Panel to display the environment variables which seems to have the same effect:

Start 
  - Control Panel 
    - System 
      - Advanced system settings 
        - Environment Variables... 
At this point, you can just click OK to close the Environment Variable window, then OK to close the System Properties window, and the FOXHOUND5 environment variable should be set OK. You can also go further and check the actual value:
Start 
  - Control Panel 
    - System 
      - Advanced system settings 
        - Environment Variables... 
          - System variables 
              - select FOXHOUND5 
              - verify that it contains C:\ProgramData\RisingRoad\Foxhound5\  - or wherever Foxhound was installed
              - if not, click Edit... and fix it.
