Downloading Builds

After generating a target, you can download the output to your computer. This is an optional step, in case you want to have a local copy of the build (e.g., you want to view your Microsoft HTML Help output, which is an output format that you cannot view from Central).

What’s Noteworthy?

Note You can also download a build from the Build Profile dialog. See Opening the Build Profile Dialog.

Note Due to issues with Microsoft HTML Help, the CHM file that is downloaded will initially be blocked. To unblock the CHM file, remove it from the ZIP file. Then right-click the CHM file and select Properties. On the General tab in the dialog, select Unblock.

Note If you attempt to open a build and Central cannot open the file in the web browser (e.g. a CHM file), Central will download the file.
