On my site I make the point that Adobe have not updated AIR (installed or browser based) for several versions of RoboHelp. It's a format that didn't really take off so I wouldn't recommend that anyone starts to use it now.
Webhelp is really the only format for server based help. That later your version of Rh, the better the browser support but Rh10 should be OK.

Greetings, thou DocMomma
Curiosity is gripping thee. Aside from thy mold that thou gazes upon thy crusty words of wisdom, hast thou discovered other petulance yet unsolved by a good oiling? Sentence fragments? Knowledge shards? Perchance, a crumbling of dusty framing?
I bid you a good day... RoboWizard
Thank you, Peter! I will be looking at WebHelp, then.
And Greetings to the RoboWizard :-)
Mostly, WebHelp just would not load. Not at all in Chrome, and in IE11, navigating to another file caused the TOC to disappear. I downloaded whproxy, recompiled, and then was able to produce a working AIR file.
I will be trying again with WebHelp.
Should I update to RH11? Or stick with RH10, if my deliverable is WebHelp?
Again--thanks for your help--you guys are The Best :-)
Of course, if you want to be a really cool & trendy Fairy DocMomma, you should be playing with the HTML5 outputs that RH can generate ;>)
I was thinking of HTML5. Is anyone here doing this?
I know of a few companies using HTML5 (either Multiscreen or Responsive). The gist is that they only support modern browsers (read IE9+). Otherwise it's either WebHelp or CHM with the odd FlashHelp here and there. The HTML5 will work if you don't have to support IE8 or earlier.
