Remove a RoboHelp project from source control, without opening RH

Hi,

I am using RH 11 and Visual Studio for source control.

I need to take an archived version of my RH project and open it for edits that do not go in the current project.

When I unzip my archive, it automatically links it to source control and downloads the latest version of the project.

It supplants the current project in source control, and even changes the path mapping in source control to match that of the archive project.

So what I need to be able to do is open my archive project without it interfacing with source control. Is there a file I can edit that links the project to source control? I can't even open the project in RH because it hijacks the source control mapping.

Thanks.

It's quite easy to do this. See Rick's excellent post: October 2004 - Banishing the sorcery Don't forget to remove the CPD file though.

Kind regards,

Willam

Hi,   This link is dead.  I need to do the same thing-- is there any other way to find the steps to do so?

TY!   My project is RoboHelp 7 HTML, linked to Visual Source Safe.  I want to get rid of the hooks into VSS so I can upgrade and work with the project freely.
