    RoboHelp 10 fails to build JavaHelp Search

    jeanha Level 1

      When I generate JavaHelp with RoboHelp 10 I have the error below in the console:

      java.io.FileNotFoundException: myProject_JavaHelpSearch\POSITIONS (...)

          at java.io.FileInputStream.open(Native Method)

          at java.io.FileInputStream.<init>(Unknown Source)

          at com.sun.java.help.search.DocumentLists.<init>(DocumentLists.java:161)

          at com.sun.java.help.search.DocumentLists.invert(DocumentLists.java:243)

          at com.sun.java.help.search.DefaultIndexBuilder.close(DefaultIndexBuilder.java:103)

          at com.sun.java.help.search.Indexer.compile(Indexer.java:228)

          at com.sun.java.help.search.Indexer.main(Indexer.java:76)


      In the working directoty used for JavaHelp, the "myProject_JavaHelpSearch" sub-directory contains:

      • DOCS
      • OFFSETS
      • TMAP


      The error is not fatal and RoboHelp do generate the JavaHelp file. The JavaHelps displays TOC, Index, and the project pages as expected, but when I try using the "Search" tab in the generated JavaHelp, it does not work.


      If I generate a Microsoft HTML Help or WebHelp, the "Search" tab works fine.


      My project is a former  RoboHelp 9.1 project converted to RoboHelp 10. It was working fine on Windows XP Pro Us (32 bits) + RH 9.1, I'm running now RH 10 on Windows 8 Pro French 64 bits.


      Thanks in advance for any help.
