Dear support team,

 

I'm using Robohelp 2019

Is it possible to generate a single self-contained .HTML file with all the support files or resources embedded like a "save as" file ?

Hate to tell you, but this isn't the Support team - it's a user-to-user forum. If you need to talk to RH Support, see https://helpx.adobe.com/contact/enterprise-support.other.html#robohelp for your support contact options.

What it sounds like you want to create (maybe) is an old-fashioned .CHM file, but they're really out of date and don't work well on servers because of security issues.

Hi Jeff,

The web help SSL output folder from Robohelp contains multiple support file such as .png, .css and so on files. The requirement is to generate a single self-contained .HTML file with all the support files or resources embedded like a "save as" file. 

Note: This query is about creating a single .HTML file to include in the build, not about the CHM.

 

Regards,

Saravanan M

If you're creating HTML5/WebHelp, then you need all the files & folders within that output folder. How you package that up to be included in your build is up to your developers - maybe zip it up & have the installer unzip it at the client's location? Personally, I use an installer package to create a self-extracting executable that our clients download & run on their system.
