Welcome to the forum.
I haven't seen anyone post anything indicating a problem. Logically it is just a transer of a zip file so I cannot see why there should be a problem. Are you seeing problems or just enquiring if there are any?
Thank you for a quick response and welcome. I'm just inquiring for any known issues. I did search the forums before I posted and did not find anything specific. I have not had any issues, but before we started down this path I wanted to see if there was anything I should be aware of. If I learn anything from this process, I will pass along. By the way, we are working in RoboHelp HTML 7.
The most important thing is to replicate the directory structure from one machine to the next. This affects the path name for the start page and the output. If your output is WebHelp, another is that unless you also copy the generated files to the same location on each machine, publishing will always "Republish All" by default (a few thousand?), instead of only publishing new and edited output files (only a few?). (The publishing process compares old to new in the folder being generated to on the local machine.)
It's also best if you generate the output to an entirely different directory that the default !SSL! folder; for our IMS merged project, we use C:\imsmerge for the source, and C:\imsgenerate for the output. Each of these folders could be zipped into separate zip files.
