I have been using RoboInfo Pro 5.0, RoboEngine v4.0 for 2
years, as a documentation tool to publish our PAID system
documentation on our web site. Roboinfo was discountinued as a
stand alone product by our Procurement dept and they purchased
Adobe 4 RoboHelp Office 7.0 WIN . My questions is, can Robohelp be
used as a documentation tool like RoboInfo and can I upgrade my
documentation from RoboInfo to the RoboHelp version that was just
Absolutely RoboHelp should handle this fine. Actually, as I
understand it, RoboInfo was just a "simplified" version of
RoboHelp. Targeted to a market of folks that didn't need some of
the more whiz bang features of the full RoboHelp product.
Upgrading your existing documents should be as simple as
opening the project in RoboHelp 7. It's been my experience that
things should go well. But it never hurts to ensure you have a
backup in place before you begin.
We have upgraded our RoboInfo 5 to RoboHelp 7 (and RoboHelp
Server). I'm having some issues publishing RoboHelp projects.
Getting "Cannot retreive page from server" or "Connection
Failed...Native error....". Not sure if the server settings are not
configured properly, but I'm sure I read somewhere that there are
issues with having both RoboInfo and RoboHelp installed on the same
machine?? I'm still using RoboInfo to publish to a different
server, until RoboHelp is working properly and will then remove
RoboInfo. Any help would be appreciated :)
