Am I right in understanding your are trying to start a new project just by taking the XPJ and HHP files from an existing project? That's not a method I have seen suggested before and I wouldn't expect it to work.
I'm not clear as to the logic of doing it this way.
See www.grainge.org for RoboHelp and Authoring tips
The root.fpj file is the main file that holds which folders and html files are part of the project. The error message probably tells you that the root.fpj file is read only.
From what you’re describing, I gather that you’re using SharePoint not through the RoboHelp version control system, but by downloading the contents, right?
Hi, Peter. My co-worker told me to set up a project on my local drive by copying those two files from our SharePoint version control location. After I create a local directory like C:/help/foo_project/ and put the foo.xpj and foo.hcc in there, I double-click foo.xpj and then, all of the files and folders are copied from version control to my local directory. So far, this method has worked for the first 10 projects that I and another author have started.
I would very much appreciate knowing about a better method for setting up an existing project on a local drive from version control.
Hi, William - I know we use Sharepoint as our version control repository but I am not familiar with the RoboHelp version control system. When I start my work day, I start RH and select my project. Then, I get a msg box about logging into the version control system.
I click OK and get a message asking if I want to download the latest version of all the project files. Again, I click OK and then, after a short wait while files download, my RH workspace appears.
Am I describing the RH version control system or something else? Thanks.
