Hi In-doubt and welcome to the RH coomunity.
If you have renamed a project, the name of the start topic does not get renamed with it. Therefore I suspect the start page is being generated but you are looking for the wrong file name. If you look in your webhelp single source layout you will see the start file name there.
Thanks for the welcome and the reply.
When I generate the WebHelp layout, the start file name & output folder location are displayed. When the process completes I go to the output folder and just can't locate my missing start file. In fact, when the layout generation process is done and I get the "View Results" option - I click on it and nothing happens.
I've even done a file search looking for the named start file and have come up empty.
But I don't have this problem when generating a HTML Help layout and it's "CHM" file. And the WebHelp Pro layout seems to be ok too. My problem seems confined to the WebHelp layout, just the one I need. (Murphy's law.)
Are you generating to your hard disk? Try that.
Yep. I've tried generating to my C: drive (several different folders), and also to a network drive. Same negative result. It's frustrating.
One note of interest. I have located an early copy of the project, in an "archive folder", that does have the "missing" start-page htm.
In the top panel of the very first window in the Generate process (labeled "Select Output Folder and Start Page"), verify that the Output Folder path is correct. It probably isn't.
Did you ever resolve your problem with the missing html file. I am running same version and having the exact same problem.
I figured out the problem. I was logged in without Administrative Rights. As soon as a logged in as Admin I was able to publish my start page and my navigation bar showed up in the left pane again.
It sounds like you may have more problems lying ahead unless you have taken these steps:
1. Decide which login ID you will use on a regular basis when working in RH.
2. Make sure that, say, MyID has admin rights on the PC.
3. Install RH while logged in as MyID.
4. Keep using MyID whenever you use RH to edit, generate and publish a project.
