Problem in viewing a converted JavaHelp (jar) file (created using RH2002 to RoboHelp X5)

Jan 29, 2009 2:14 AM

Hi,

I have a javahelp project (compressed javahelp) created using RoboHelp 2002. The output files are jar files.

The source files are .mpj. When I view the existing jar files without converting the project to .xpj I am able to view the jar files.

However, this project needs to be upgraded to RHx5. During conversion(.mpj to .xpj) everything seems to be working fine and the javahelp files are generated. But when I try to view the jar files nothing is diplayed.

I get the following error. Please see below.

Has anybody come across anything similar? Is there anything I need to take care of before I upgrade to .xpj? I cannot locate the glo.xml file in RH.

Best regards,
Urmi

    Hi Urmi.

    By the sounds of things you may have a very old JavaHelp component if you are upgrading from RH 2002. First step would be to ensure you have all the latest components. Peter Grainge has a good article of what is required on his site.
