See the Sandcastle 188.8.131.52 Release Notes
for details on all of the changes made to the underlying Sandcastle tools and presentation styles.10/13/2012 Refresh
- This update includes the following fixes. If you are affected by these issues, uninstall Sandcastle v184.108.40.206, download this refresh, and run the guided installer to install Sandcastle again.
- Fixed the VS2005 and VS2010 presentation styles so that F1 keywords work properly when looking up API members via F1 in Visual Studio with MS Help Viewer.
- Fixed MRefBuilder so that it doesn't exclude System.Xml and System.Data from the framework assembly cache. This was causing the build to fail with unresolved assembly references for Silverlight projects.
This release uses the Sandcastle Guided Installation package. Download and extract to a folder and then run SandcastleInstaller.exe
