I'm sure it's user error, but ... I'm evaluating Adobe
Technical Communications Sutie (which I've never used before)
because we'd like to publish help files out to a web site with an
existing app running in a .Net environment. I've searched
everywhere, but can't find the documentation that tells me:
1. do or don't I need RoboHelp Server ( I think so, but I'd
like to see why in writing)
2. the actual process to publish out to the web
Can anybody help direct me to where this documentation might
Hey, zjillian and welcome to the forums!
In the case you outline, I don't believe you would need the
RoboHelp Server *necessarily*. It's optional and depends on whether
you would like to use the features provided by the server. You can
read this article that explains more about the server.
If you don't need these features, then publishing as plain
"WebHelp" to support a .NET app would be fine. Either method can
use the .NET API (also optional) which is included for free with
RoboHelp along this path on your computer.
C:\Program Files\Adobe\RoboHelp 7.0\CSH API\RoboHelp.NET
The actual process to publish depends on your particular
destination and method. For example, sending them via FTP to a web
server directly, or placing them on a LAN Share drive where the web
administrator can pick them up and place on the web server.
