    Upgrade to RoboHelp 8. Root.FPJ incorrectly modified!!!

    Kutra Level 1

      I upgraded my RH 7 project to RH 8 and found out that the upgrade process messed up my root.fpj file. As you know, root.fpj is a file that lists all the files listed in the "root" folder of your project in an XML representation.

       

       

      The upgrade is just supposed to change the value of attribute "majorversion" in the second line in the FPJ file and NOTHING ELSE.

      RH7: <rhpml majorversion="2" minorversion="0">

      RH8: <rhpml majorversion="3" minorversion="0">

       

       

      But in my case, the upgrade wiped out several <topic> </topic> tags and reduced the file size of root.fpj from 200KB to 30KB! So very obviously, when I opened my project in RH8, there were hundreds of broken links!

       

       

      If this happens to you, my suggestion (and what worked for me) is to replace the upgraded root.fpj file with the root.fpj file from RH7 and modify the value of attribute "majorversion" in the second line in the FPJ file to "3". Everything should be fine.

       

       

      Hope this helps,
