Yesterday a got a a request from a customer how want to work with TFS Source Control from RoboHelp:
Adobe® RoboHelp® 9 software is an easy-to-use solution for technical communicators to author, collaborate, personalize, and optimize content for help systems, policies and procedures, and professional knowledgebases for multichannel, multidevice publishing.
This is possible using the MSSCCI provider and some registry changes:
- Download and Install – MSSCCI – http://visualstudiogallery.msdn.microsoft.com/bce06506-be38-47a1-9f29-d3937d3d88d6
- Add Key “RoboHelp” Under [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Team Foundation Server MSSCCI Provider\Settings\]
- Add Key “ROBOHTML.EXE” Under “RoboHelp” Key
- Add DWORD Name “issues” and Value “d1”
Now when you open RoboHelp, goto the File menu create new project or open an existing one and add this project to Version Control.
Choose the MSSCCI provider.
After that all files can be checkout or check-in directly from RoboHelp and you can work with TFS Source Control.
