I have upgraded some large merged webhelp projects rather than rebuilding them anew. The thought of rebuilding didn't even cross my mind. Why do you think that is necessary?
Create backups in case anything does go wrong but upgrade and see what happens. It should be fine.
See www.grainge.org for RoboHelp and Authoring tips
The most important word there was BACKUP.
Opening RH7 projects have corrupted several of my prosjects, RH8 also freezes a lot. Seems to be some kind a problem there, but luckily I managed to fix it merging an older RH7 project file with content files from corrupted RH8 file.
Does anyone know if a single file being inserted from a network drive makes RH7 making a corrupt file.
Lost loads of hrs earlier one with RH7 before I knew about the problem using network drive
If the networked file was purely a backup there shouldn't have been a problem. If however the file was a source file for a project that was opened on a network drive it could very easily have caused you problems. Unfortunately most people find out the hard way
Read the RoboColum(n) for a tips, tricks and musings on the Technical Communication Suite products.
It wasnt a backup file but a flash file used in the project in one of the topic pages.
I've used the RSC Convert Wizard to make a copy of my database. Since a lot of our processes are based on the database name I'd like to use the orignal rather than the copy. I suppose I could stop source control and copy the database files to a safe location as well.
Did RoboSource Control 3.1 change in a meaningful way between RH7 and RH8?
I've spent the morning looking for a "How to migrate from RH7 to RH8" but not found one. Do I just install RH8 and open a database and hope for the best?
