I've been working with RoboHelp 8 the last few months building a Policies and Procedures project that can be part of std-alone workstation. The problem is linking to a manufacturer PDF file on the C drive. I've created a baggage file and created the hyperlink in the document but it won't launch.
The project layout is converted as a WebHelp with the checkbox checked for Mark of the Web.
I have a number of PDF files I wish to link with the procedures.
Locally with MOW the call to the PDF will fail. However for your users the help will be on a server and it will be OK.
For your own testing going into IE settings (Tools > Options > Advanced and allow local files to run, then generate without MOW. Alternatively use FF to test.
