I am developing Help for a large project with output in responsive HTML5. It has been recommended by Adobe that I develop everything on my local laptop hard drive, which I am doing. I have all the links to images and topics that point to my c:\....\....RoboHelp project. How do I integrate with the software that I am supporting and maintain all my links?

Depending on what version of RH you're using, the generated output will all be in one main folder (with many many sub-folders & files). All links are relative to each other, so that the "c:\" bit won't matter. You should work with your developers to figure out how and where this output folder's contents will be placed/packaged.
Jeff, I am having an initial meeting with developers this afternoon. It was a concern.
Also, I just generated an output to Microsoft HTML Help and there were no images, only text. How about integration to Microsoft HTML Help?
CHM output should include images, so something went wrong with that - but I wouldn't use it since it's super-ancient technology (from Microsoft years ago) and isn't being enhanced. HTML5 is the new thing.
Also, CHM won't work if you plan to run it from a network drive or the web. (There used to be hoops you could jump through to make it "work", but it was a pain, and possibly per user, and over time fewer of the hacks even worked.)
