Sandcastle with no assembly

Hi
Is it possible to run Sandcastle across XML documentation files only, which no assemblies?
Thanks in advance

No, in order to produce API documentation, Sandcastle needs a reflection information file so that it knows what the types and members are, their visibility, etc.  If you are trying to produce a help file that isn't related to an API, you should take a look at Sandcastle's support for conceptual content.  It uses XML files containing Microsoft Assistance Markup Language (MAML) to build topics for non-API help.
