I have written and maintain Help systems for two products in
RoboHelp 5.0. Each has compiled fine in WinHelp 4 format for years.
When I compile either of them in HTML Help format (single .chm
file), then double-click the resulting .chm file to open it, the
Contents and Index appear to be populated properly, but I cannot
open a topic when I double-click one in the Contents or Index. The
topic window remains blank. I would think I should be able to open
the .chm file independent of any application and open all topics
contained within it, just as I can with a .hlp file.
Should I be able to have access to all of my topics (about
2,000 indexed and 650 context-sensitive) just by double-clicking
the .chm file? Are there specific project settings I need to set a
specific way to get HTML Help to include all topics? Anything else
I might be overlooking?
Thanks for the help. Running the .chm on a network was
definitely part of the problem. However, I'm now finding that while
I can open the topics that are listed in my Contents or Index, most
of my topics are not being included in either of them. One of my
Help systems uses a "See Also" button in most topics and the other
doesn't. I don't seem to have a problem with dropped topics with
the system that doesn't use "See Also". Could there be an issue
with converting "See Also" to HTML Help?
