Subject:Error Message on Help File! From:Layna Andersen <laynaa -at- CARECOMPUTER -dot- COM> Date:Mon, 30 Nov 1998 12:45:04 +0000
I'm working on a help file in RoboHelp 6. When I compile the project, it shows
no errors. When I make the project, it shows no errors. However, when I view a
topic in the compiled help file, I get a Windows Help message that says "An
error exists in this Help file. Contact your application vendor for an updated help
What could this be, and how do I get rid of it? I've made sure all my topic
window types are the same in both the topics and the TOC. I made this Help
file from a part of an existing help file. Is there something I've overlooked? It's
driving me crazy, and I've got a deadline tomorrow!
