          I have converted this to a new thread as it is a different problem.


          Your scenario is that you only have the X5 generated webhelp output files. You cannot use those to upgrade. You are going to have get them back as source files in X5 first. There is information on Rick Stone's site on how to do that. See Reverse Engineering on my site for a link.


          If you have already uninstalled X5, you have another treat in store in getting that running again. See Snippets on my site. I suggest you do that on a different machine than the one with RH8 or you will have yet another mess to sort out!


          When you have a good X5 project again, then you can upgrade that but do take a backup first.
