This problem has been around for a year or more! Now. there is a work-around that's cumbersome but works. It requires the Robohelp user to "save target as ..." to either the desktop or a folder. The specific instructions to the user are listed after the following rant:
Last June I sent Microsoft support the following e-mail, to which I got a feel-good, sympathetic reply, but no patch has ever been issued as far as I know:
"My company developed and maintains custom software for nine DoD, DA and other federal agencies and the subordinate organizations for each. Each client organization accesses the software via its own web server we set up and maintain. There are several hundred individual users overall.
"We developed online help using Robohelp HTML. The introduction of Microsoft security update 896358 has rendered the online help useless!. This is tantamount to locking the barn while shooting all the horses. The "workarounds" suggested in your technical bulletins are totally impractical for intranets with large numbers of users. Microsoft has GOT to QUICKLY develop a patch that can be applied at the server level."
