We had a harddrive crash with, yep - I know, no backups of this particular server.  I have an old copy of my project from 2015, but I really don't want to lose 5 years worth of updates. I do have the most current version published to the web and have brought it down to our server to try to decompile.  Unfortunately, the RoboWizard site that was offered as a soulation 10 years ago on this forum is no longer available.  I have purchased the newest version of RoboHelp.  And I do still have a copy of the old 2015 version if necessary.   Has anyone got any ideas on what to do?  Thank you in advance!

I did review that and he references the RoboWizard site to get most of the information back - but that site is no longer in existance.  I'm wondering if anyone has a copy of the instructions or a different way to do this now.

I still have the site on my hard drive. I used SnagIt to screen capture what I believe is the page you are looking for. I've uploaded it to WeTransfer and you may download the image from the link below:

Let me know if I can help further or if it's the wrong page.

Thank you Capti8r!!  I'm going to give this a try before I go the paid route. (Thank you too Jeff_Coatsworth)  Both options are much appreciated. Somethings got to work, as I have way too much time invested in this project!

Also, apologies for the inconvenience of allowing the domain name to expire. Since I'm minimally involved with RoboHelp these days it simply wasn't financially feasible to maintain things. Especially with RoboHelp moving in a completely different direction.
