    Hi everyone,

    I am a new user to XMetal and I was trying to create a HTML Help file from the DITA Map. I already generated a PDF and it worked just fine but, when I tried to create a CHM file I got an error message that said: “Output could not be generated because the application 'HTML Help Workshop' was not found”.

    Is this something extra that I need to install on my computer? How do I create CHM files?

    Thank you for your help!

    Yes, you need to install this tool separately. You can obtain it here:
    http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=21138

    If that does not take you directly to the Microsoft download page for this tool, search for “html help workshop” at http://www.microsoft.com

    No additional configuration is necessary beyond installation as it registers itself with Windows in such a way that allows XMetaL to automatically find it.
