uninstalling Robohelp 8 question

Apr 11, 2012 8:48 AM

I'm uninstalling RH8 and I'd like to be forwarded to a good procedure for doing this. Is uninstalling the correct term? What I am trying to do is remove RH8 from my system and give it to another person. I went through this procedure a year ago but want to make sure the transfer goes smoothly.

    Before you uninstall you need to deactivate the licence so that you can activate it on the other person's PC. You can do this from the Help / Deactivate menu item. Then you can uninstall the application in the normal way. Some people prefer using an uninstall app like RevoUninstaller though.

    He means through the Control Panel's Add/Remove Software mechanism.

    If the project source files are on your PC you'll need to copy them somewhere (e.g. a network drive) where the other person can copy and paste them from.

    I suggest zipping them up & moving them that way. Peter Grainge has reported issues sometimes occurring when doing a straight copy/paste on RH projects.
