I don't use RoboHelp a lot, but last week, I needed to rebuild two
projects. The Search tab no longer finds any hits. Yes, the Project tab,
Windows folder, shows my window, with the Search option box checked (as
it was the last time I used it).

I even tried reinstalling RoboHelp. This is an HTMLHelp as Primary

What could have happened? What "broke" the Search function?
