I have created a small Help file that includes Captivate
demos. I generated both a FlashHelp file and a Microsoft HTML Help
file without a hitch. But I want to be able to publish the Help
file as a standalone application that can be downloaded to the
desktop of a laptop as a support tool. I don't see a way to publish
a standalone file. Please help...
What problems are you encountering with HTML Help that deter
you from using this format? Of course, HTML Help is a Windows-only
format, and users who download HTML Help files from the Internet
must unblock them before they can view the contents (for the
reasons outlined in the following article), but this is normally an
ideal format in which to deliver self-contained help.
I'm not sure what you mean by "as a support tool," but you
may want to try out the RoboHelp Packager for AIR and see if it
works for what you want. It bundles a WebHelp output into an AIR
application that is downloaded to the user's computer.
