            This thread has not heped me as i ma not understaning this:

             

            As a start I'd look at the alias file and add the missing =

            character. and The alias file is the one with an .ali extension. It is a

            text file so you can open it in Notepad and edit and save.

             

            regards

            prema

              I'll go through three options listed in the thread as possibilities:

               

              1. There is an ali file used for context sensitive help, so it should only be necessary to make changes if this is set up for your application.

              The = symbol separates the context (map) id and the help topic. The context id could be a number of things, depending on how your organisation set things up.

              Examples:

                 AUDIT_TRAIL=Audit_Trail\Audit_Trail.htm

                 99187=Audit_Trail\Audit_Trail.htm

               

              I don't use this myself (we have a custom solution), but possibly there could be an ID without a topic, or a topic without an ID, or maybe spaces either side of the = sign.

               

              2. The ali file is saved in the wrong format, indicated by the symbols in the error - .

              You would have to open the file and save in in ANSI format. I think you should just be able to open the file in Notepad, Save As and choose the Encoding for it.

               

              3. The path to the project is too long. If you have a very long directory structure to get to your project, try moving a copy of the project to a directory something like c:\myproject and seeing if the compile works there.

                  The path name is still a bit long. Try a new layout that generates to C:\bmg_chm\BMG_help.chm.

                   

                  You'll note that only one other topic was compiled after your changes, so you didn't gain much:

                   

                  Last topic compiled in Instance 1: modifying_cp_user_configuration.htm

                  Last topic compiled in Instance 2: Modifying_Content_Provider_Users.htm

                   

                   

                  Good luck,
