I am running RH 11 (installed in Program Files x86) on a Win 7 (64 bit) machine. I have just created a brand new project with a lot of folders/subfolders and only one Welcome topic. This project compiles just fine using the RoboHelp GUI. However, when I run RHCL from the command prompt, it refuses to run.
Here are the details of the command and results:
from c:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe RoboHelp 11\RoboHTML
c:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe RoboHelp 11\RoboHTML>rhcl "c:\knowledgecenter\knowledgecenter.xpj" -l "WebHelp"
Adobe (R) RoboHelp Project Command Line Compiler version 184.108.40.2061

Scanning project for compilation....
Error: Failed to scan all the project files. Please use RoboHelp to recover the project.
Unexpected Error: Failed to prepare single source data for RHCL. Please try to compile it in RoboHtml.
I tried deleting the cpd and starting the project from the hhp file - did not make a difference.
thanks in advance,
I cannot help you directly but there is an article on my site about Command Line Generation written by Bill Albing. Maybe something there will help.

Thank you. What I discovered yesterday was that after checking out the project from SVN to my local machine to test the command line build process, somehow some of the FPJs were missing! Because the folders that contained the missing FPJs were empty, I guess the RH GUI could ignore them and successfully compile. Turns out, I somehow missed checking all of the FPJs into source control. Once I got all of the FPJs checked in, when I refreshed from SVN to local, the command line build worked fine.
