Hello baleib -
Could be a corrupted cpd file. Save your cpd file somewhere safe then re-start your project and re-generate or check this thread:
Thanks, we will give this a try. Some of these files are 10+ MB.
Also don't store your help projects in a virtual directory such as "My Documents", create a real directory off your C: drive.
(Oh and one other thing of course, don't work off a network drive..... )
Unfortunately, the problem persists after compacting the .cpl for the project file in Access 97 - reducing it from 10MB to 3.3MB. The "Generate Primary Layout (HTML Help)" hangs and also if you modify one of the files and save it also hangs. Any other ideas?
CPL? Don't you mean CPD?
Compacting isn't quite the same as renaming an reopening the project but see the article on my site about Opening Projects before you do that.
Or try creating a new layout.
The link did not say to delete, so we just compacted/repaired. This time we deleted the files and seems to be working good for the first two days; it re-created the files. Thanks.
