    External Topic Links Not Working

    TimEm

      I can't get links to external topics workig. This has never been a problem in the past. I am using RH7 to produce chm files. The external chm file appears in the baggage area.

       

      I have tried starting 2 completely new projects and the same problem

          Some more information would be helpful. What is the error message if any? How are the links being created?

            I spotted the problem when I had some issue wiht a merged project. This is what I have:

             

            project A is the master

            projects B and C are slaves

             

            Project A has its own topics plus projects B and C as merged projects in the TOC. When I run project a all appears to be great I can select the topics form the slave projects, and links form the slave projects to teh master also work (Master is in baggage of 2 slaves). Exactly as I want. Th eproblem occurs whe you run the slave projects on their own the same to the master fails. with the following message:

             

            The page cannot be displayed

            The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your browser settings.

             

            The link is an external link. When you look at what it is trying to display

             

            res://C:\WINDOWS\System32\shdoclc.dll/dnserror.htm#mk:@MSITStore:D:\Documents%20and%20Sett ings\e301346\My%20Documents\Monitor_Task.chm::/IQ_Tool_Manual.chm::/Clear_the_Grid.htm

             

            The above fails the link below is the one generated when the same page is displayed form the master project

             

            mk:@MSITStore:D:\Documents%20and%20Settings\e301346\My%20Documents\Monitor_Task.chm::/IQ_T ool_Manual.chm::/Clear_the_Grid.htm

             

             

            I have tried creating 2 projects from scratch with an external link this also fails.
