Hmm .. that sounds like a bug. The idea with the Generate Output command 
is that it generates output from the "current" file (map or topic). If 
you have no file open, it *should* tell you that no file is open when 
you choose the Build button. I'm wondering if you have some document 
open invisibly and that's confusing things (I'll do some testing to see 
if I can get it to break). However, in the future, you should open a 
file first, then run the command.
