I am trying to export to epub using FrameMaker source files and once I select generate > epub output Robohelp closes.
I undrstand you need 7 zip to work with this program and have downloaded and installed. I cannot find anywhere to tell Robohelp where this is located. is this the problem?
All I can find is a vague reference to need 7 zip on your laptop.
Is there a need to modify the epub_Generator.jsx to tell the script where the zip program resides and if so how?
Robohelp crashes even when generating an epub using the sample projects.
in case you have updated (or installed) version 9.0.2 this uses a different zip program. You can find the path and a direct link in the generate -> epub settings. In this tab you also need to tell Robohelp the path to the file.
Installation of this program (zip.exe) is not necessary, just download to any location and set the path.
In case you have updated to 9.0.2 you aditionally need to copy a file. This is desctibed in the readme (regrettably this is not very user-friendly and easily overlooked).
It is 184.108.40.2062. Hoever, I cannot even get to the dialog telling the program where the zip program is located. It crashesd as soon as I select to generate epubs.
I have looked at all of the readme filles an none address anything relevant.
OK so the issue nothing to do with 7-Zip's location and version, Rh crashes as soon as you go to File > Generate > ePub.
Go to Tools > Scripts > ePub Generator. Does that crash as well?
What if you go to File > Generate > Eclipse Help? Does the dialog open or does Rh crash?
See www.grainge.org for RoboHelp and Authoring tips
Go to Tools > Scripts > ePub Generator. Does that crash as well? Yes, it does.
What if you go to File > Generate > Eclipse Help? Does the dialog open or does Rh crash? No, I get a dialog. I din't go through and generate help though.
