I use RoboHelp 7 on Windows XP. Another division of my company has their own RoboHelp project that I wanted to see so I could use a similar layout in my own. The owner of that project said they use Windows NT. I believe if they copy the files and send them to me I shouldn't have any problem opening them on my computer. Am I correct in assuming this? They state their Robohelp won't run on my machine with XP.
Your feedback is appreciated!
Email I received from a coworker:
Our version of Robohelp is the NT version and must be run on a PC that is an NT machine. In addition, we have 2 licenses to RoboHelp for administrative purposes. These are not on the network –they are assigned to a specific machine and are loaded onto that specific machine only (we have the 2 licenses right now). This is one of the reasons that the curent users have multiple PC’s each. Each has a specific NT machines for publishing RoboHelp. Robohelp will not run on an XP machine.
If their version doesn't run on XP, it's probably an old Robo version. Robo should convert the old project to a Robo7 project when you open it the first time.
Note: Conversions may fail, so always store a backup for if anything happens.
