Nothing wrong with the question except the title. Helps if they are titles that others will search for.
You have two main options. One is generate a CHM instead so that he can see the content but of course that will not have the skin. So if that is important, then zip up everything that is in the webhelp folder under !SSL! assuming you generated to the default location. You need to send all that is in that folder and its sub folders, assuming you want the webhelp to work. :-)
Or even better. Post it to a web server and just give them a hidden URL that opens the project!
I *can* post all these files to a web server. How do I give them a hidden URL to open the project? (This opens it in a browser, correct? - not in Robo-Help?)
The URL needs to be that of the start page. All Rick meant by hidden, I think, is that it is one you and your colleague know but it is not published anywhere.
Another approach is to zip up the output Webhelp folder, send it email, and have your colleague extract all files into a new folder on his/her hard drive.
Yes, include all the furniture -- whdata, whgdata, skin, etc.-- in the output directory.
Isn't that what I suggested in my first reply?
Yes, you did, Peter, but I noticed tunlaw asked:
Do I send all the files, including whdata, whxdata, etc subfolders and send those? Does he need the !SkinSubFolder! too? Everything?
You did say everything, but I wanted to emphasize what "everything" means.
And I probably didn't read your response carefully enough. Reinforcement never hurts. (smile)
