Ran Sandcastle; now what?

I've finally gotten around to running Sandcastle (I'm pretty sure its version 2.7).  I selected my .DLL; it then created a .scproj file.  But now I have to ask, where's the output?  Besides the .scproj file, there isn't anything else I can see as documentation.  Certainly not a .chm file; or if there is one, I have no idea where it is.  I tried to find help on running Sandcastle, but got nothing.  So, what now?

The GUI included with Sandcastle itself is rather basic and not very user friendly.  As I recall, it dumps the output in the C:\Program Files (x86)\Sandcastle\Examples folder in a sub-folder named after the project you created.  Try the Sandcastle Help File Builder.  It provides a much better standalone front end and Visual Studio integration for Sandcastle and provides more features.  It also comes with a help file containing Getting Started topics that will help get you going.
