I have to install RD/z unconnected to the network (because of intrusion detection systems here). Once the is done and the HD cloned, I am able to connect to the network for testing etc.
So, if I want to install Local Help, the only options I see using Installation Manager are to install "limited" help during the install and then when RD/z is fired (after being connected to the network) allow it to download the rest of the help. Once everything is tested then the PC support group roll out replacement hard drives for the developers (I know...don't ask).
How can I install help locally from the media I have (I do NOT download RD/z), but have to order media (have it AV scanned etc before using it).

Re: rd/z V8.5 and Local Help install2012-11-30T16:31:32ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.For installing the local help from the media, notice that you have a directory RDz85_Setup\documentation\help
and you will find a file named RDz850_UpdateSite_zip.zip
Unzip this file into a temporary directory
Start RDz and press Help--Local Help Updater
Add the internal site where you have expanded the zip file as for example C:\temp\localh850sz\site.xml
select IBM Rational Developer for System z Documentation and press Install
When finished you will have the local help installed in the computer.

Interesting though. When "browsing" to the location of the Help file and clicking OK on the site.xml file, it kept giving me an error with a file path containing "fakepath". However, if I clipped the path and filename in using Ctrl/C and Ctrl/V it worked.
I had to change some of the ActiveX security settings to even do this. Why does IBM use ActiveX to do this type of installation?
Really kinda odd.
