I have a problem with generating CHM through command prompt. As the topic title says, when I generate a CHM with RHCL.exe, all the topics/text that have conditional tags applied do not appear in the output. The problem occurs only with the command line RoboHelp, and CHM generation through GUI works just fine. I also tried doing the same thing with a sample project and the problem persisted. So it looks like RHCL simply removes ALL conditionalized content, regardless of the conditional build expression set.
I use Windows 8.1 and Robohelp 2015. Previously, I had Robohelp 10 and never had such a problem with it.
Currently, as a workaround solution, I have to generate the CHM files manually, which is very troublesome, because CHM generation is only a small part of our automated doc publishing process.
To me it looks like an obvious bug. Did anybody else face this problem?
Thanks in advance.
Searching on fourms brought me to this topic, which apparently has the same root cause: .CHM help compiled using RHCL differs from same help compiled using RoboHelp GUI
However, the solution provided there is not applicable in my case. I also saw that there was an issue submitted, is there any progress on this?

Yes, I have the patch installed. Executing rhcl.exe outputs the following:
Adobe (R) RoboHelp Project Command Line Compiler version 220.127.116.118
Apparently, it wasn't fixed in this patch... I'm still experiencing the problem.
The bug was fixed in Update 2. Thanks.
