Can you tell us what your output is?
I'm using WebHelp if that's what you mean? Been using that for the past couple of years.
I hope Colum doesn't mind me budging in. This error normally indicates that the WebHelp scripts could not load the XML resource files located in the folder whxdata. Can you check the following:
- Clear your entire !SSL! folder by hand to make sure it's empty.
- Generate your help.
- Check that the folder whxdata contains files called 'package_<number>.xml'.
Do you see any of these files? If so, check the search function. Is it working OK?
Are you using merged help or just a single project?
Is this issue being seen on both the generated and published output? If not, how is the help being opened (i.e. manually via a shortcut, via a CSH call, elsewhere in a product).
Be my guest Willam. I tug my forelock in your direction
Was there ever a final resolution to this thread? I am seeing this same issue in a merged WebHelp file that I have. I am using RoboHelp version 8.02. Some searches work fine and generate results; others generate the Failed to load xml file error. Doesn't seem to be a clear rhyme or reason, although I did get the error when searching on keywords starting with a W (referring to the other thread on this issue).
I tried clearing the !SSL! folder for each of the projects and re-generated each individual help file. Still get the error. The whxdata folders in each output do contain the package files - some have only one (package_0.xml) while others have multiple package files. Anyone know what determines how many of these package files get generated?
Happy to send screen shots if it will help troubleshoot, or is this an issue to take up with Adobe support?
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
