          Sounds like you have used the command File > Get Folders from within RoboSource Control Explorer to insert your project into the database. This adds the files .pss, .cpd, and possibly .ldb, but these files must not be part of the database.

          Your best bet is opening the database again using RoboSource Control Explorer and deleting these files from it. After performing a Get All from within RSE, your problems should be vanished.

          Oh, and in the future allway use the Add to Source Control command from within RoboHelp Office to add a project to your source control system.

            In addition to the three files mentioned by Dirk, keep the .hhp file out of source control, as well. To recap, the files to eliminate are .cpd, .hhp, .ldb, and .pss.

            Good luck,
