You don't compile webhelp, you generate it. You compile HTML
Help into a single CHM file. The former is a collection of files
and folders that would normally reside on a server. The latter is a
single file that should be run from a local drive.
If you only want the programmers to check content, rather
than style and so on, then you could create a CHM file and they
could check that. CHM files need to be on their PCs, not a network
If you do want them to see the final result, skin etc, then
they need access to the webhelp. Put it on a server for them and
give them a link to the start page as defined in the first page of
the wizard. Or zip it up and let them do that. Make sure they
extract the zip file properly to maintain the folder structure.
