Hello all of you!
Just finished a major project in RH2019 classic based on merged MS webhelp chm's . Didn't migrate to RH2019 because I had errors and quirky parts (opening daughterwindows and things like that, sorry it's a while ago). I've chosen for safety, had lost a lot of time trying to upgrade. Pressure is off now, and I should start looking in upgrading to the most recent version of RH.
I'm having several questions.
Can I install the latest version of RH and start doing some tests, without loosing the possibility to continue working in RH2019 classic? I don't want to 'test' this, as it could be a irreversible choice.
Knowing I had troubles with RH2019 'modern' gui and my setup of merged project, which would be the right path to follow for a test?
Can you install RoboHelp 2020 and leave 2019 installed? Is that the question? I have both installed on multiple machines as well as 2017 on some.
If you double click RHPJ folders in File Explorer they will default to 2020 being the latest version. XPJ files will still open in 2019 Classic.
so doing an upgrade leaves the old executables in place (or we have a choice at install)?
thanks for your prompt and fast assistance!
best regards Olivier

RoboHelp has always left older versions in place. They are installed/uninstalled separately.
I find the new installer disconcerting because it doesn't tell you where the product will be installed. You could vote for this item to add a visible path, if you would like something similar:
Well, hopefully more people vote on the item because it's dumb. 🙂 (IMNSHO)
