    do I actually need Robo Server if...

      This is kind of a morph of a previous discussion I started, but my problems still are not resolved and I'm getting dangerously close to our next Production release so am reaching for answers.

       

      I have a "new" RH6 project that I am using to create CSH WebHelp. (I created a new RH6 project and imported topics that have been from x5 to 7 to 8 and back to 6.)  Don't ask :-)

       

      The project seems clean. I've deleted all the weird script tag red square things, removed 2 rogue topics that appear to have been making it crash, and it compiles nicely now.

       

      I have an old help system and an old Robo Server (RoboEngine for x5) out on the Production server.

       

      First question. I don't need WebHelp Pro. So I don't need  Robo Server, correct?

       

      Second question. How do I/can I get my webhelp files out there on the server in such a way that the application will call the CSH topics and basically just circumvent the old help files/robo server entirely?

       

      thankyouverymuch...

          Not asking.

          First answer.

           

          NO! And you are corrrect!

           

          WebHelp output will work just dandy on a basic web server. (Note that I said WebHelp output and not WebHelp Pro output! I'm not sure WHAT WebHelp Pro output would do or how it would behave on a basic web server.)

          Sure thing. See if this link helps you sort it.
