HxS file built using Sandcastle June '07 CTp and SHFB latest. I've used the Help Integration Wizard to build a merge module and setup project to install the help. It installs ok but when I view the help collection in dexplore, I only see a single page int he TOC. The page I see is the page I set in the properties for the top level node in the help integration wizard.

When I walk through the wizard using a hxs file shipped by MS, it works ok. Any idea what might be wrong?

Update. I tested installing a hxs file that was built using Help studio lite. No problem. integrates cleanly. Next test is to build the sample from sandcastle and see if that works. Back in a sec :)

ok. so the example project shipped with sandcastle integrates perfectly. I wonder if it's because my hxs file multiple top level nodes and all the others I have tried just have one?

it definitely seems to be a problem with help file builder. I'm running a custom build that includes the fix for root namespace. I'm now rolling back to 1501 and see if that fixes it.

Yup, it's official. Sandcastle Help File Builder builds hxs files that will not integrate properly into Visual Studio's help collections.
