    Help importing WinHelp project into RoboHelpHTML

    IonicRobin Level 1
      Dear All,

      I am a programmer currently evaluating RoboHelp Office X5, with the intention of converting our existing WinHelp project to the more modern (and vista friendly) HTMLHelp.

      I have tried using the import function (RoboHelp Starter/Import/WinHelp Project -> HTML Help.
      This is a large (2000 topics) project, with a cnt file, map file (HM) and topics.rtf file.

      Robohelp chugs away for a bit, then opens the new RoboHelp project.
      The screen briefly flashes with the workspace, then refreshes, and the HTML Files (Topics) folder in the workspace is empty. i.e. the new project appears to contain no topics.

      RoboHelp has produced HTML files (about 2000 of them), in a topics directory, but these don't appear in the project itself.

      Not sure how to progress? Any ideas?

      Hope someone can help,
      Merry Xmas!
