Is the project source on a local drive (good) or a network drive (bad). If the former, you could try renaming the projectname.cpd file and reopening the project.
Well Colum, I truly appreciate your help. Once I renamed the .cpd file and re-opened the project, it worked perfect as it had for the past year.
I opened the cpd file in Access, it appears this is the file that RoboHelp uses to list all of the files and options in the project. I wonder what makes it stop working...
Again, thank you.
One question though, now my Project Manager Pod doesn't show any of my images....
EZ. At the top of the Manager pod, click on the Show / Hide icon (looks like a blue funnel). Make sure Images is checked off.
Unfortunately, that is not the case here. It only shows the most recently added images and a few others.
Rename the folder(s) containing the images. You can then restore the original names. I have seen that bring back "missing" images.
The CPD file is a Microsoft Access database and every one in a while any Access database needs compacting. Because of the way RH uses it, and most people would not have Access, it is simpler to rename it and let RH build a new one.
Thanks buddy. Since I do have access, obviously, I performed a compact and repair on it and restored it back.
I should have thought about that, considering that it was 22MB in size, and especially since some of our products use Access databases (I was a technician for a few years) and have had to do that a couple of times for our stuff as well.
I will try that if I need to in the future, since the compact and repair worked, I am not too worried about it right now as I finally have my images back...
Thanks to everyone that posted suggestions...
Thanks to all of you -- for posting and responding re: this issue -- I spent a lot of yesterday and part of today running anti-virus software and uninstalling/installing RH, trying to resolve the exact same problem. I renamed the cpd file, renamed and restored the image file names, and all is well!! Whew.
I have a quick question here, I was not sure how to start a new thread..
I have imported a .mpj file in Robehelp 8; links for the images are messed up
STAAD.foundation User Manual_files/image021.jpg is showing as
Can you please help?
Best to start a new thread for new questions. This thread is badly titled as all threads are basically about problems with using RH.
%20 is the standard way of showing spaces on the web. Are these links failing in outputs or just showing up in a different way to what you expected?
