You need to keep the output directory same as .xpj file location. In order to separate the results, you can create another directory called "output" inside the project folder where the actual .xpj file located.
So the script would be as follow:
"C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe RoboHelp 8\RoboHTML\rhcl.exe" "<path><test_project_name>.xpj" -l "<name of the SSL>" -o “C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe RoboHelp 8\RoboHTML\output” -g “c:\temp\RH_test.log”
You can use this, it should resolve the issue.
Never generate to the same folder as the XPJ file. A sub-folder within the !SSL! folder, which is itself a sub-folder to the project folder with the XPJ file in it, is OK.
I think that is what Robo Cap meant but I wanted to clarify that.
You have indicated that you are Adobe Support. Do you mean you are an employee of Adobe or just someone providing a bit of support and adding that as a bit of fun? If the latter, please don't as it is misleading.

No, I didn't mean that, because when we are generating the help file from SSL window in RoboHelp application, it creates the SSL! and other chain of subfolders.
So it can messed up the output generated from command line if we will keep the SSL location. But since it generates many other files while generating help file, so I suggested to create an output directory, so users can create directory with any name just to keep helpfiles separate.
Users should create another subfolder inside output folder if they are generating multiple help file using command line.
I hope this makes sense.
Yes I am an adobe Employee.
