We have RH 9.
Our developers are working on implementing RH's dynamic CSH API inside of our software product:
The instructions our developer found say:
CSH API\RoboHelp_CSH.cpp (C/C++, dependent on the .h)
CSH API\RoboHelp_CSH.h (C/C++, dependent on the .cpp)
I zipped up the CSH API from my RH 9 version and sent it to the developer. We're using Visual Studio 2012.
But now the dev is asking, "Is there a newer version? This one doesn't compile in win32 without me making some tweaks, and doesn't work at all in x64..." and "Is RoboHelp10 an option? 9 doesn't seem VS2012 compatible or x64 compatible."
Does anyone know if there are there is a later version of the API available that works for 64-bit / VS 2012?
The RoboHelp 10 API should work for WebHelp created with RoboHelp 9. Since the RH10 API will now support Multiscreen HTML5 (introduced with RoboHelp 10), I imagine it will work with VS 2012. But I’ve not tried that. You can try the RH10 API, but Adobe won’t support it
Alternatively: A colleague of mine created a custom C# API some time ago. That might work for you: http://www.wvanweelden.eu/blog/2012/08/03/custom-webhelp-apis
Thanks Willam. That custom API might be useful for some of our C# applications. And thanks for your PM.
Anyway, I don't know if this makes a difference, but our target outputs required by our software are compiled html help (CHM) files.
