I guess a bigger question here is: Can your co-worker log in and even create a project? Any project? If not, you have larger issues. But the answer may be as simple as having your co-worker create a folder and you copy the files to the folder they have no problem accessing.
This should go without saying, but I'm assuming that your co-worker is actually sitting in front of your PC when the attempt is made, no? Otherwise, you are working on a LAN connection.... Shudder...
Thanks for the response. Here's some more detail. Yes, my co-worker logs on to my PC, no LAN involved. He can get into the needed directories and can open files in them-- I did Properties-Security-Add on the directories and this gave him permission for all the files. But somehow Robohelp knows the project isn't his even though he has permission for all the files. It says something like "cannot open project database", mentioning a file with extension .cpd. But this file, and all the other files, show my co-worker's ID as one of the owners. Any ideas?
RoboHelp will only work for the logon that was used to install RoboHelp which was yours. So if your colleague is sitting at your PC using their logon, it is not going to work.
You have two options.
Uninstall RH and reinstall it with your colleague's logon remembering they must have admin rights when installing.
Let your colleague use your logon. Yes I know about the security side. I only said it was an option, not the best solution.
