Compile error on HTML file

# Le 01/06/2018 à 10h15

We've got a project that is not compiling HTML Help anymore. During the compile I get the "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." error message when it tries to compile a particular file. I am able to compile the project as WebHelp without errors, so it seems that it's something to do with compiling HTML Help.
The files that it chokes on are HTML files (not XML files) that were generated by another tool and included in this project. The files were generated by Captivate as container pages for Flash animations. These have compiled n previous releases. The files open fine in browsers (without errors), and I can't see anything in the html that would be a problem. I deleted the file that it was choking on, and I got the same error on the next file in the project, which is a similar file.The project stopped compiling when the writers pulled the files out of Source Safe to start a new release. I'm not sure if the problem is related to SourceSafe, to the fact that they are HTML and not XML, or something else.

Please help

I didn't find the right solution from the internet.
