What Arbortext version are you using? You mentioned the Compose to DMP menu
pick. I don't have that and as a result DMP Composer is a separate piece of
software. The version I'm using doesn't have an installer. You essentially
have to configure a build directory and a make file. I think the latest does
have an installer for DMP Composer, though. (DMP Consumer is the second
"half" of DMP, essentially the webapp or standalone java/thin-tomcat/webapp
application you create to distribute on CD, DVD, or on the web.)
Web wireless, as far as I know, is only the license. I'm not aware of
software related to that. Without the license, you won't be able to compose
to the various HTML outputs. I compose to HTML Help (which requires the
download, install, and one-time launch of Microsoft's Help Project or
whatever) and feed that output to DMP Composer via batch, but I am working
with late-beta of the initial DMP 5.x release.
And SORRY ... head-fake. I was remembering the help page for HTML Help.
Search for Compose HTML Help in the Editor help system. There isn't DMP help
in Editor yet.
To get Digital Media Publisher, you have to download the application through
the "Order or Download Software Updates" link at ptc.com/support. If your
licenses are in order, you should be able (once through the top layers of
PTC's software pages) choose:
ARBORTEXT DIGITAL MEDIA PUBLISHER
I see two choices: 5.3 m030 (DMP's 5.x F000 release, practically speaking)
and 5.3 m040.
At the top level of ptc.com/support, you can choose Download Reference
Documents. At the next page, choose:
Arbortext Digital Media Publisher
All Document Types
All User Roles
Now you have to read carefully ... no matter which mXXX you download, you
will need documents from both the m030 and m040 sets as not all documents
are available in both versions (whether delayed, not written at the time of
initial release, or not updated for second release, I don't know).
Anyhow, that will get you a lot further along (assuming your licenses are in
Again: I am uncertain about what version implications exist since you are
seeing Compose to DMP. For some reason I was thinking that was still to
come. This option, by the way, may require use of PE and therefore
connecting PE to Microsoft's HTML Help compiler AND DMP Composer (unless
this has been integrated in the PE install).
Once you get far enough along, if you are interested in my batch "make" file
strategy, let me know, I'll write something up.
