    HHC5003 compile error

    Jop Smith Level 1
      When compiling my project I get the following error:

      HHC5003: Error:
      Compilation failed while compiling http:...

      I've added a URL for my home page in the Advanced Window Properties dialog box and this is what it's having a problem with. However, the project compiles OK and the Home link works fine.

      Just wondered why it's happening and how I can remedy it.

          Hi jop22.

          This "error" message is seen when the compiler can not find a "file" in the project. However as this is not a file but a link which is outside the project you can just ignore the message. As you have found, the link works.

            That's fine then. Thanks.

            Another quirk I'm encountering (and this is off topic) is that everytime I compile my "Contents" file, its HHP file ends up with loads of network references to my merged Help files (e.g. G:\<Server>\<Folder>\<File.chm>) as well as just the <File.chm> reference to the merged files. This results in duplicate entries in the Search.

            How can I stop it adding these references to the HHP file?

            Hope this makes sense.

              Hi jop22

              This would seem to imply you may have your project stored on a LAN (network drive)? If so, try moving it to your local C drive. Working with a project while it is stored on a LAN causes more grief than you might imagine.

              Sincerely... Rick
