    Problem with running rhcl.exe in batch file

    evillen

      Hi,

       

      I'm running Robohelp 8 and trying to use rhcl.exe to generate multiple help projects. I'm having a problem with the folder where the rhcl.exe is generating the web help. It seems to ignore the "-o" switch and gets the generation folder from the project all the time. As you can see from the log file below, the exe appears to pick up the "-o" path  (......\Test\Opportunities.htm), but writes the generated files to the path in the project (.....\Opportunities\index.htm).

       

      Anyone else come across this problem?

       

      MY BATCH FILE IS:

       

      "C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe RoboHelp 8\RoboHTML\rhcl.exe" "C:\Data\RoboHelp\RoboHelp Projects\SubProjects\SupplierPortal\Opportunities\Opportunities.xpj" -l Webhelp -o "C:\Data\RoboHelp\GeneratedWebHelp\SupplierPortal\mergedProjects\Test" -g "C:\Data\RoboHelp\GeneratedWebHelp\Generate.log"

       

      THE LOG FILE CREATED IS:
