The project is stored on a network...well, that certainly helps the diagnosis.
Get the source files off the network. Put them on the C: drive of the PC where RoboHelp is installed. You can copy source files to a network drive for a backup, but never, never, never work across a network.
Why? Because what RoboHelp uses to define a project is an Access 97 database. Access does not run well over a network (this isn't just anecdotal, Microsoft affirms it).
So "run local" is one of the Two Commandments of RoboHelp. Just FYI, the other command ment is that RH needs to be installed on your PC, using your login, and your login must have admin privileges on that PC at the time of install.
Well, for starters, try closing RoboHelp, then moving that project OFF the network to your local C drive. Then generate it and see if things improve.
If this works, your next assignment is to spend 20 minutes of your lunch break searching these forums using the term "network". You will be surprised at the number of posts you discover when you do this.
I know, I have RH installed on my machine and I have admin access, but my boss is a micromanager delux and she wants to have access to the project at all times. Which means storing it on the network drive. I have moved it back to my hard drive several times, but she just doesn't get it. I'll give it a shot. Thanks.
yes, and yes. I guess I will have to go back to just loading a copy back to the network every time I make a change, but I work for a state agency and you guessed it, we have a very slow network. OH, well, thanks for all the help.
