Hi all,

I've installed the Dec CTP build of Sandcastle, and loaded the latest (1.3.3.1) Sandcastle and fired it up (using an old project file).

When I hit build, I immediatly get the following error:

Sandcastle Help File Builder GUI, version 1.3.3.1
Creating output and working folders...
Clearing working folder...
Finding tools...


BUILD FAILED: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Any advice?

Regards,

You may need to reboot in order for it to see the DXROOT environment variable. There's currently a bug in the 1.3.3.1 version that causes the problem you are seeing if it doesn't find it. If that doesn't work, just specify the path to Sandcastle in the SandcastlePath property for the time being.
