Problem Environment:
eHealth 6.1
Problem Ticket: PRD00037422

Causes of this problem:
There are two problems:


1. When nhDiscover produces any error message and writes it into discover out file, the appropriate message doesn't get to the OCE client and it keeps constantly querying, making it look like OCE is hung.
 
2. The finder gets a windows-style path from the policy file as tcl source code. It is known that the TCL interpreter treats "\" as special character like its keyword. For example, when user types: C:\temp\debug.txt. This value is interpreted by TCL as C":empebug.txt".



Changes affecting this problem:
In eHealth 6.1, it is necessary to add environment variables to the Discover Policy.


When adding new parameters to a policy for finder debug, a pop-up message is received, although the changes are saved. When a discovery is run using the Discover Policy with the finder debug variables set, discovery never completes and no finder.debug file is produced.
