Question: How do I see Foxhound diagnostics, errors and exceptions?
You can use Foxhound Options - Display Diagnostics
to see messages recorded by Foxhound itself.
Here is an example of a Foxhound exception message with an explanation of the different sections:
exception id: 1, 2, 3...
| date and time of the exception
| | Foxhound build number
| | | Foxhound connection number that detected the exception
| | | | exception location within Foxhound code
| | | | | diagnostic text: variable format target database id and name
| | | | | | |

Also, you can use one of these "debug" shortcuts to start Foxhound
so that messages produced by the SQL Anywhere engine will be captured to this file on Windows XP:
All Programs - Foxhound1 - Tools - Start Foxhound via Chrome - debug
All Programs - Foxhound1 - Tools - Start Foxhound via Firefox - debug
All Programs - Foxhound1 - Tools - Start Foxhound via IE - debug
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\RisingRoad\Foxhound2\foxhound2_debug.txt
and this file on Vista and Windows 7:
How do I report unexpected errors and exceptions?
How do I start Foxhound in "debug mode"?
How do I start Foxhound in "safe mode"?
How do I figure out what went wrong during an installation?
