Copy the project to the new PC and use File | Open. Point to the projects MPJ file and RoboHelp will do the rest. I am assuming you are using RH HTML. Same approach with RH for Word except you point to a different file.
To copy the project, I suggest you zip it and move it. Quicker that way and less prone to error.
Unless you meant to say you have the Acrobat 8 application installed, you are cheating yourself out of the ability to create PDF. Maybe it was just a typo, but Acrobat Reader is not the same as the Acrobat application. The Acrobat application allows you to create .PDF content, while the Acrobat Reader only allows you to view PDF content that already exists.
Thank you so much for the response. Actually, after I posted the question on Forum we had lost internet connection for some time and I just went ahead and tried it by myself.
This is what I did – since we use MS Visual Source Safe, my all files were in the working folder of VSS in my c drive. I just clicked the Open tab/More Files in RoboHelp Starter and located the RoboHelp HTML Project File. It opened without any problem. Everything looks alright.
Is there anything specific I should be checking to make sure if it is working fine in this version of RH. Because I did not create this project, somebody else did and I have never used this tool before this is the first time I will be using.
I found your site pretty helpful though and it did have some information about Source Safe. I still have one question related to Visual Source Safe that Is RoboHelp v6 linked to VSS automatically and check the files out from it automatically whenever a project is opened or we have to manually set the link between the RH6 & VSS.
In RH x3 whenever I would open a project it would prompt a message that in order to open this project the following files need to be writable, would you like to make them writable, selecting that option would checkout all the files from the VSS to make them writable. However, in RH V6 I opened an existing project and it opened without checking out the project files from VSS. Do you have any idea what’s happening?
Ps: Do you recommend any book on RH 6 for starters or any other recommendation?
Your help is always appreciated
Actually, it was not typo, I did mean to write Adobe Reader 8 and that’s why I was doubtful but thank you so much for the clarification. So, having said that do you think that I should go ahead and install Acrobat Element 7 and that is not going to have any conflict with Adobe Reader 8, I guess not but still making sure.
Thanks for your help
The only thing I can think of to check is if you have table with merged cells and you use conditional tags, not necessarily on those tables. If you do, there is a patch available for that. The problem is described in Snippets on my site.
I cannot help you on the source control questions. Someone else?
