I just want to check. When you downloaded the trial of RH7 and opened your project, did you make a backup first? I hope so and you're not trying to use RH6 to open a project that was previously opened in RH7. The two versions are incompatible.
Ruh roh. I didn't make a backup but I know IT has backups to restore from. However, I made a bazillion substantive changes when I was using 7 and I don't want to lose those. What I'm doing now is just applying a new template to update the look and feel. Basically new header image, footer text, and topic header/background color.
Is there no way at all to work with this project in 6 now?
The code is entirely different so the short answer is no.
What I would try is generating a CHM and reverse engineering that, as described on my site, and opening that in the earlier version.
I have no idea if it will work but it is the only thing I can suggest. It would help if you let us know if it works and what issues you encounter.
Well I tried the reverse engineering thing with no luck. So I tried downloading a trial version of 8 and opening my project. Thought it was working, albeit rather slowly, but as soon as I tried to apply a master page to multiple topics (5) using the topic list/topic properties functionality, I got the dreaded referenced memory error again. I don't think this is a version issue. But I don't know what it is.
I do see that some topics have templates attached to them that do not appear in the templates/master pages list. Would that cause this problem maybe?
It might be worth trying to create a new project and importing in the HTM files.
yeah sadly i did that already with same result. This help project is probably five years old by now. Maybe it's just been through too much, lol. may have to salvage what i can and start over, AFTER this week's major release for which I will probably have to manually update the header image and footer text and topic shading thru an html editor. boo.
