Error: Failed to Copy Temporary CHM File

Postby amyrn on Mon Aug 25, 2008 4:12 pm

I am compiling a project. After the project generates the alias files, I receive this error: "Internal error: Compiler: Failed to copy temporary chm file." As a result, a .chm is not generated.

What can I do to get rid of this error?

First thing I'd check is to see if you have enough drive space available and rights to write to the specified output directory. Also, see if the output directory still exists. Other than that we'd need some more infos about where the file is going, where the sources are located, how large the project is, how much drive space is available, which OS and Flare version, and if it ever worked before.
One more thing, you don't happen to have the old file open?

Won't be that - Flare will error out before it starts by telling you the file is in use and cannot be deleted. (I try to do this alot, so I'm familiar with this error message :mrgreen: )
Until next time....

Thanks for the correction. I don't deal much with CHMs, they look so butt ugly.

I found a solution: I am working in Russian language files and Flare didn't like the use of Russian under the Target folder > Basic Tab > Output File field. I changed the language from Russian back to English in the Output File field and now have no problems with publishing.

Thanks for your help!

Old post I know.

But I was just getting this same error message building a chm target.
I am building six separate chm targets, and was having trouble with just one of them for some reason.

Selecting Project > Clean Project seemed to have done the trick and the chm built successfully.
