This action creates a step to compile a HelpNDoc project file.  From the inputs, the HelpNDoc command-line is constructed and called when the action is built, and any log output is captured to the log view and file.

This action has been tested with versions 3 thru 8 of HelpNDoc and may also work with other versions.


Note: If Visual Build doesn't detect that this product is installed when first run, this action will not be displayed (existing steps will still be displayed in the Step panes and will build normally).  To show all hidden actions, right-click in the Actions pane and choose Show Hidden.
