    Context-sensitive help for Visual Basic application

      Adding context-sensitive help

      Hello,

      I recently upgraded from RoboHelp 4 to 7. I'm working on a project that was originally done in RoboHelp 4. One of my tasks is to add context-sensitive help (I've never done this on any project before). So I've looked through all the help on how to do this and have my part as the author figured out. I have assigned map IDs to a few topics and exported the map files for the software developer. (The primary layout for the RoboHelp project is Microsoft HTML help).

      Here is the problem: The software application was developed in Visual Basic. The help file titled "Context-sensitive Help for Visual Basic applications" calls for Robohelp_Csh.Cls. I cannot find this.

      The help page titled "Support files" says the file can be found here: C:\Program Files\Adobe\RoboHelp 6.0\CSH API. I have opened the CSH API folder on my computer for RoboHelp 7 and have the following files:

      CSH_API.cpp
      CSH_API.def
      CSH_API.vcproj
      frmBrowser.frm
      HtmlHelp.h
      HtmlHelp.lib
      RoboHelp_CSH.cpp
      RoboHelp_CSH.frm
      RoboHelp_CSH.h
      RoboHelp_CSH.java
      RoboHelp_CSH.js
      StdAfx.cpp
      StdAfx.h

      I don't have the .cls file. What can I do?

      A second question - Does the software developer have to have RoboHelp installed to do his part?

      Thank you.
