How can I create a help file for a web service project?

May 30, 2008 at 3:38 PM
I was just following the steps in the tutorial and noticed that a dll file (like test.dll in the example) is needed to build a help file. How can I create this help file for a web service project which neither a dll file nor xml file can not be created?

Secondly, on Windows PowerShell, I tried to run this comment and get the following error. How can I overcome this?

    "scbuild -buildchm -buildhxs -framework 2.0 -sources test.dll,comments.xml"
    ERROR: Unknown presentation style: vs2005

Hi,

See the following article for some background information:

Note that Eric Woodruff has created a custom code provider that can help out so that you don't have to create a separate class library for your App_Code folder.  It will most likely be available within the next couple of weeks on the Sandcastle Styles project (which is not live yet, by the way):

I can't help with the PowerShell stuff though - sorry.
