I'm using RoboHelp 2017, our documentation is added to our software application that uses a embedded browser, Chromium. When we publish the docs it doesn't get updated because the cache doesn't get cleared. So some people see the new content/splash page and some see the previous pages. We did find a way to clear it by going into the %AppDat% folder and deleting the BrowserCache but our documentation goes out to customers and we can't expect them to go and manually delete this folder. Is there anyway to embed code to clear Chromium cache in the published docs?

IIRC, the answer is "yes" - what code you need to add post-generation, I don't recall, but I have seen it mentioned here on the Forums and I'm sure someone has answered it on StackOverflow. Give it a Google & let us know what you find (I'm 99% sure there's no way to stick it into the code that RH creates automagically inside RH, but you can add it post-production)

Yes there was a long thread about clearing the cache and, as I recall, the poster was working with their IT and they tried many thing and it was much more than just adding some code. I'm not sure they were successful.
