Topic Summary

When trying to compile my HTML help file I get the following error:
HHC5010: Error: Cannot open "c:\Documents and Settings\skiernan\Desktop\PDK up rev\PDK_html_test.chm". Compilation stopped.
All of the source files are in the correct locations and I have checked the compile paths.  Do you have any other ideas what might be causing the problem?
Posted by: Support Staff Posted on: Jan 26th, 2005, 6:55am
The help compiler should generate this file, it shouldn't open it.
Or maybe it is attempting to create this file and doesn't have disk space or permissions?

I have the same problem.  
It is not a disk space or permissions issue.  I am able to create a file with the same name with the new command in the file manager.  I have lots of available disk space.
Any other suggestions to the solution are welcome.

I had the same problem.  Was playing around with "HtmlHelp API" in "Tools"in the "ContextMenu".
Change "Command" to "HH_DISPLAY_TOPIC" and make sure it is pointing to the correct compiled file.  Everything else should be blank.
Give this a try.... it worked for me.

Oops.... sorry... I meant     ContextMenu, "Test", HtmlHelpAPI

I solved the problem in this way :
1. I renamed the chm file ( for example, I changed the name Help.chm in Help_OLD.chm )
2. I recompiled the file Help.hhp
And it worked !
