Does the SandcastelConsoleBuilder still use the XSLTransform and BuildAssembler.exe even when the helpfileformat is specified as Website?
The reason why I am asking about it is, it seems that these two utilities are eating up the lions share of the CPU time. It would work for me if I change the format to Website instead of CHM and save some CPU time. Thanks in advance for any anticipated suggestions on this

BuildAssembler runs no matter what the format as that's the tool that renders the help topics in HTML format. XSLTransform is used at various points to transform the reflection information in various ways and to produce some of the supporting files. In short, there's no way around them.

Makes sense. Thanks Eric.

So if I want the output format to be website I should probably se the property
-ouput=website
in my response File.

I am using the SandcastleBuilderConsole.exe to generate the help file.

Please correct me if I am wrong

Use the property names as they appear in the GUI. They are not case-sensitive so the following are equivalent:

-HelpFileFormat=Website
-helpfileformat=website
