Hi Gyanesh...

Sorry .. I misunderstood which function you were using. I thought you 
were using the "Build FM book from ditamap" (yeah, I know you clearly 
said the "Generate Output" command). What happens if you save the map 
before running the Generate Output command? It only asks to save if the 
file was unsaved. Also, you can say "No" to the "OK to save" dialog .. 
try that as well. feel free to send me your files .. it's possible that 
there's something in your ditamap that the system doesn't like.

Something else to check .. In the DITA Options dialog, do you have the 
Topic, Map, and Book structure application assigned properly to the 
corresponding options? When you start Frame, do you get any messages in 
the console window?

Many people are successfully generating HTML and CHM output through the 
App Pack .. however, this requires that you have the DITA Open Toolkit 
installed properly as well (this is no small task). All the Generate 
Output command does is pass some parameters off to the OT, there is no 
CHM or HTML output processing provided with the App Pack.

You may want to sign up for the framemaker-dita Yahoo group 
(http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/framemaker-dita/), since that's the 
forum where these things are discussed more regularly.
