Since upgrading to HM8 I cannot generate an ebook for any of my projects.

Not many clues...

Is your Ewriter Help already running? Windows won't let H&M create an .exe if the previous file is running.

Unlike Webhelp, you have to remember to close the previous Ewriter before editing it further.

That's the first thing I checked, Martin.

I've even turned my PC off and on, so that's all my ideas used up.

Hi Ga,

The initial release was missing the new eWriter viewer, so it wasn't able to generate the EXE version. Just download the current build and it will solve the problem:
