How to Test Updatable Help


This topic describes approaches to testing Updatable Help for a module.

After uploading the HelpInfo XML file and CAB files for your module, test the files by running an Update-Help command with the Verbose parameter. The Verbose parameter directs Update-Help to report the critical steps in its actions, from reading the HelpInfoUri key in the module manifest to validating the file types in the unpacked CAB file and placing the files in the language-specific module directory.

When all verbose messages are resolved, run an Update-Help command with the Debug parameter. This parameter should detect any remaining problems with the Updatable Help files.
