Help.chm doesn't work

Recommended Posts

Hi Paul,

neither our beta tester nor I can verify this problem.

A mouse click on Help FSC and a double-click onto the file work properly here.





The content in the Help file is absolutely identical to the manual.

Can you right click the file and "Open With..." then select Internet Explorer?

I'm not sure that works with CHM files, but it may be worth trying. Apologies if that doesn't help.

I recently downloaded a CHM file and it came with the following instructions:

If you are using Windows XP SP2 or later and you are going to download the documentation in CHM format, you need to "unblock" the file after downloading it by right-clicking on it in Windows Explorer and selecting the "Properties" menu item, then clicking on the "Unblock" button (on Windows Vista this is within the "Security" options). Failure to unblock the documentation file may result in error messages including "Navigation to the webpage was canceled" due to Windows security restrictions.

I don't know if the instruction was only for the file I downloaded or if it might apply to all CHM files. Give it a try, can't hurt.
