Hello.. I am new to robohelp and need to generate a Javahelp output. I am currently installing the needed components, however, I cant find JavaHelp 2.0 anywhere. Searched online, but almost all links are dead. Does anyone know where I could download Javahelp 2.0? 

 

Thanks.

We are currently using RoboHelp Classic 2019. I am trying to generate the Javahelp 2.0 output since that is what is being used in our systems. Without Javahelp, although I am able to generate the Jars/outputs, the search functionality is broken. I am getting a message that I cant get search to work without Javahelp ( Advanced - Options - Enable Search). I have the latest JDK and ENV variables setup as per instructions. Thanks.

Yes, I did look up Peter's site and sadly the links no longer exist. They lead to archived downloads, but i cant find JavaHelp there.

As I said, "why javahelp".

 

It was little used at the best of times and was never very good. My understanding is that webhelp could be used and that's where most people went.

 

I will update my site re the links.

Thanks Peter.. We inherited this application, so I am not aware of why the decision was made to use Javahelp. Its the generated JAR file that is consumed by the applicaton. We are phasing out this application soon, so I am sure changing the format would not be an option now.
