When i do use help2.x  similiar errors appear.

What's wrong?

Thx in advance!

I discovered that these are not the only files that are missing. Alsmot all directories and files in Help/Presentation are missing.

Hi Marc,

It sounds like the New Project Wizard didn't run to completion due to an error or user cancelation.  Check the Windows Application event log for details and make sure the Add-In is still installed and enabled (Tools > Add-In Manager...).

Ok you are right. The error message i found in the application event log was:

Access denied to .... topic.xml

 I tried to import a project that is under source control. During import it copied the topic.xml and apparently also the read-only flag. Then the importing process apparantly tries to modify the copied topic.xml which ends with access dendied fault.

Hi Marc,

People seem to be experiencing a few different issues related to read-only flags.  I haven't had these problems myself and I use SVN (not by choice though ;).  Anyway, I'll be looking into the various read-only issues for 1.12.0.

Here's a couple of related work items:
