My RoboHelp 9 project is integrated with TFS/Visual Studio. The server went down yesterday and won't be back up until late today.
If I open the project locally (rather than from Version Control), how do I eventually get the latest files (those that I've worked on locally) into Version Control?
I use the following method:
1. Open the project and disconnect from source control.
2. Modify any files you need. Be aware that when you add/rename/remove/move files, the RoboHelp control files are modified too. (.apj and .fpj)
3. When TFS is up, check out the files using team explorer. Do NOT overwrite local files. (Make a backup first.)
4. Using TFS, check in all modified files. Do NOT check in the XPJ file. If you do, the project will lose its connection with source control.
5. Thrash the local project.
6. Get the latest version from the server.
Be aware that this requires that you know what you’re doing. Especially when control files are modified. When you only modify the content of existing topics and check the existing topic in, you should be fine.
