New Build - Version 7.1 Build 410.

Thu, 19 May 2005 05:28:38 -0000

This build fixes all bugs / issues reported since Build 385.

Excerpt:
Legend
=====
B = Bug Fix
N = New Feature
I = Improvement

Version 7.0.1.410
B - Fixed bug in WinHelp import where "?/@#$%^" characters are now filtered out in import. This caused HTML-Help compilation to fail.
B - Fixed several import issues.
N - Command Line Compile.
Command-Line compile settings:
'/ch' for CHM
'/cp' for PDF
'/cw' for WinHelp
'/cr' for RTF
The syntax is:

where
= c:\program files\avhelp\avhelp.exe
= /ch, /cp, /cw, /cr
= full path of the *.sh5 file to compile.

For example:
c:\program files\avhelp\avhelp.exe /cr c:\documents\help.sh5

That will compile the help file as WinHelp.

N - USB Thumb Drive support. (Contact us for details on how to install HelpMaker on a USB Thumb Drive.
N - Added a menu-popup option to "set as Default Topic".

N - Chapter to Text items now are shown in HTML_Website Help

Project going closed-source/ freeware.

Mon, 16 Feb 2004 01:45:57 -0000

hi,
some time ago, I thought that I could get the community's response.

However, I recevied:

1) SNIDE REMARKS for NO REASON,
2) PERSONAL ATTACKS,
3) NASTY COMMENTS,
4) NONSENSE,
5) F**** AND OTHER BAD WORDS

THIS IS AN OPEN-SOURCE PROJECT. IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, YOU CAN SEE THE SOURCE CODE BEHIND THE PROGRAM AND FIX IT.

IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO FIX IT, YOU CAN KINDLY POST A MESSAGE ON SOURCEFORGE AND I WILL TAKE A LOOK AT IT AND WHEN I HAVE TIME, I WILL FIX IT.

TAKE A LOOK AT THE OTHER PROJECTS. THEY ARE LESS COMPLETE THAN HELPMAKER IS. TO DATE, NOBODY HELPED ME WITH THIS PROJECT. INSTEAD OF HELPING, THEY DISCOURAGE THE AUTHOR BY MAKING STUPID COMMENTS, SNIDE REMARKS, POSTING BAD WORDS TO EVERYONE.

IS THIS HOW YOU TREAT AN OPEN-SOURCE PROJECT?

THE AUTHOR OF THIS PROGRAM GOT TIRED OF THESE REMARKS MADE TO HER AND DECIDED TO MAKE THE PROJECT CLOSED-SOURCE AND FREEWARE.

THE EXPERIMENT WITH OPENSOURCE IS A FAILURE.

YOU CAN NOW OBTAIN UPDATES OF HELPMAKER FROM www.accviz.com

hi,

Sorry for the long delay.
Just FYI.

Sat, 29 Nov 2003 18:47:55 -0000
