    A network drive is considered an unsafe or hostile location for a chm.

    Thanks to your prompting everybody, I think I've got it. A shared drive under the XP Mode VM is treated as a network drive and CHM files cannot be run from a network drive. Copied to anywhere on drive C of XP Mode, it works.

    Hey Laurence,

    I did download the chm from your site again to be sure to have the latest and
    I'm testing it right now under a genuine XP, no problem at all, everything is well.
    Do you have more informations as how to reproduce this problem?

    Pierre

    To be clear, the file is in a subfolder and I start it from Windows Explorer or a shortcut.
    Anti-virus is an up to date Microsoft Security Essentials.

    What is the original location, ? chm files are considered risky they can be used for exploits. Location and owner can cause them to not display.

    btw thanks, first I have noticed of your hard work

    I strongly believe that you both got something mixed up. Microsoft has stopped supporting HLP files, first when Win7 came out. CHM files are supported as usual. If you need to read HLP files you can download the (unsupported) software for Win7 here.

    I've received a report that this CHM file does not work under Windows XP. The message "Navigation to the webpage was canceled" appears in the topic text space. To the best of my knowledge, this file contains no external internet links. Also, the security warning dialog box on startup never goes away, even though the file has been "unblocked". I have verified this using XP Mode under Windows 7.

    BUT, here's a strange thing: If the file is copied to the desktop it works fine from there, but never works from Explorer.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    If I considered it hard work I'd never have done it - but it did end up being something of a challenge! Sorry about the increase in size - the non-scrolling headings added significant code to every single topic.

    The CHM file has been updated.

    Non-scrolling heading bar, like the original.
    Buttons moved from body to heading bar.
    Text chevron links changed to buttons.
    Other minor cosmetic tweaks.

    Very nice, Laurence!

    For ease of use it beats the link I've been using. (Fewer clicks! )

    It might be using Internet Explorer to download rather than the operating system is what adds the "block."

    The same thing happens on Windows/XP using IE. Does not seem to happen when I "FTP" files.

    Code:
     'Unblock'
    That was it! Thanks

    Dave,
    Right click on the file, select properties, then 'Unblock'
    It seems a common thing with CHM files and W7.

    BTW are you the same Dave Biggs of the Yellow River Debating Society Circa 1985?

    If so, send me a PM.

    Ian.

    Hi Laurence,

    Unfortunately on my Win7 and Win10 machines I don't get anything (topic text) displayed in the main window.

    Hey Laurence,

    Having seen the quality of your work in the past I believe I will have one more file on my PC. :-)

    On the go to look at it...

    Thank you

    Pierre
