Generating PDF output in RH v2022.2.22

Hello fellow tech writers, 

 

I am using RoboHelp Version 2022.2.22.  I understand that RH needs JRE to generate PDFs.   On my computer, I have JRE 1.8.0.202.  In RH, under Edit > Preferences> Tools, I set the Java home path as C:/Program Files (x86)/Java/jre1.8.0_202.

 

However, when I try to gen PDF output, it’s not working.  I get this message:  Failed to generate PDF-Category-mgt [my pdf preset]. Check log for more details.

  1. Does anyone have advice on  how to set up JRE to work with RH. How deep in the folder structure does the home path have to be?
  2. Where can I find the log files?  There is no link in the error message that would allow me to view the log file.  There are no log files in my RH project folders. 

Thanks,

Bob Shairulla
