I am pretty sure all my paths are right, and writable - this is all on the 
TechPubs drive that I have used for 6 years,and nobody else uses. And it is the 
same setup that we have used in the past to generate OmniHelp successfully many 
I am glad my ini file looks good. 
I will copy the files to my local machine and try again. 
Thanks, Jeremy!

We're always game.  ;-)

LOL!  Don't give up!  Just take it one step at a time...

Odd.  Are you sure the [Automation]WrapPath is correct
for your system?  It looks like you are working on a
server; are you sure you have write permission in the
wrap folder?  For that matter, are you sure the files
are getting produced at all?  Frame has problems working
with files on a server... we don't, but if *it* won't,
there's not much we can do.  Try moving your project
to a local drive, and see if that helps.

But first, see if you can copy the .htm files from the
working dir to the wrap dir using Explorer.  All we do
is copy *.htm, *.js, *.gif, *.jpg, *.png, and *.svg;
worst case, just do that by hand.

Good!  That's a change we made last year, for the benefit
of some browsers that won't treat them as JS (which they are)
if they don't have a .js ext.  Make sure you have the matching
OH viewer files for your project, not an older set.  The new
ones are in ohvhtm10.zip (for HTML) or ohvxml10.zip (XHTML),
which you should have.

Your mif2htm.ini file looks fine.  If you still have any
problems, do write us directly.  ;-)
