Distribute FlashHelp

By default, all FlashHelp output files are placed in a project subfolder (!SSL!/FlashHelp). When you generate FlashHelp, you can specify the name of the folder where the FlashHelp source files are located, and the name of the start page.

If the project includes subfolders, the FlashHelp folder includes these subfolders with the files in them. Do not rename or move any of these folders to keep the project structure intact.

Distribute FlashHelp with an application

1)Copy the FlashHelp Folder and its contents to a location designated by the developer. Let the developer know which .htm file is the start page.

Publish FlashHelp to a disc, server, or desktop

1)Let users know which start page (.htm file) to select to view the Help system.
