I am migrating the sandcastle from the 1.7 to 1.8. I have generated the Help 2(HxS) files using the sandcastle. After that i am registering the Help 2 files using the H2Reg.exe. However it properly registered the HXs files and TOC also appeared in the document explorer. But the problem is filter is not working. But in our previous product release that i have generated using the 1.7 and filtering  is working fine. But in our current product release i have generated using the 1.8. Is any  known issue in the SFHB 1.8. Please assit me on this.

Edit the SHFB project's HelpAttributes property and click the Default button to add the three default help attributes (DocSet/NETFramework, DocSet/{@HtmlHelpName}, and TargetOS/Windows).  That should get filtering to work.

I have added the Help attributes property to all my sandcastle projects. Now its filtering properly. Thanks to Eric.
