This is probably not duplicate of bug 127368.
Problem seems to be caused by configuration of builder.

Hudson console:

- open main menu Help|Help Contents
Comment 8 Jiri Skrivanek 2013-08-22 07:01:56 UTC
Now it is not possible to open help which also blocks automated tests.

Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 201308212300)
Java: 1.7.0_40; Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM 24.0-b55
Runtime: Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment 1.7.0_40-b40
Comment 9 Jaroslav Havlin 2013-08-22 08:28:37 UTC
The older reports are probably related to system configuration, see bug 107775.

The current problem is caused by removing help files in dbschema:

I've removed the rest of HelpSet files:

The helpset is not completely unregistered, including mapping of help IDs
and items in TOC. Maybe we will have to update mappings and TOC of the
helpset where the topic was moved into.

Ken, can you please check it? Thanks.
