How can I place a .hlp file on a cloud drive and be able to download to another PC and be able to open it?

    Whilst I appreciate RoboHelp for Word can produce a .HLP file, I'm puzzled as to why you are asking this question in a RoboHelp forum. Your question seems to be a simple one about how do you upload a file to and download from a cloud drive. That will be down to how the store you use works. A .HLP file is just another file as far as that is concerned.

     

    Is there something more to your question?

    Hi there

     

    Is this question more rhetorical? Or are you saying that you are having problems making it work?

     

    If it's rhetorical and just pondering whether it will work, I might suggest you actually try it and see. After all, what's the worst that would happen?

     

    If you HAVE tried it and are having issues, it will be infinitely helpful to you when asking here to state what the exact issues are that you are seeing.

     

    Cheers... Rick

    If you are just trying to see if it works you'd need to upload more than just the HLP file to the cloud. At the very least you'd also need the .CNT file. If my memory serves me right (it has been years since I used RH for Word) there is a report you can run to list all files that need to be installed to make the help file run effectively. All of these would need adding to the cloud and downloaded by the user.

    Colum, it depends on exactly what is in the HLP and whether it is a 16 or a 32 bit HLP.

     

    I still have MANY HLP files that never ever had or needed a CNT.

    OK I understand why you have asked here but I'm seeing .HLP as being a very dated format and cloud drives as being new. With that in mind I'm not sure many people would be uploading .HLP files using new methods.

     

    As Rick has suggested, give it a go. There's nothing to lose.
