- Aug 31, 2008
This is why I went for the online version only.
The HTML online flavor is readable by all OS's and the .chm file is totally MS Specific. (unless you have installed some viewer for it)
I'll update the manual to say winderz help file :]
.chm files are a Microsoft file format. The viewer is automatically installed on machines with Office 2000 and a few other MS packages. Apparently MS is dropping the format in the future citing potential security risks (just another one of the endless security risks with MS). It is not easy to find their viewer. It is apparently part of the Microsoft HTML Help Workshop. You can get it here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms669985.aspx Click the link on the page to download Htmlhelp.exe. Run it and it should install the viewer. Google has posted a list of other viewers here: http://code.google.com/p/htmlhelp/wiki/CHM If we do include the user manual in the WUHU distributable, I guess we will need to consider how to install the viewer as well. I would not have thought about it since it comes with the C++ compiler. --- In firstname.lastname@example.org, "alrjr2001" <alrjr2001@...> wrote:
Hi John, Is the .chm file thats contained in the zip file something that will open on the PC with just a double click? (I "assume" using notepad or perhaps Word, etc.) I tried to open it on the Mac & though I'm sure I can find a piece of software that will allow it to open properly as it is I get the examples folder & the wuhumanual.chm file which doesnt associate with anything I have on the machine. I can move it to a PC if need be, just curious about a .chm file as this is the first time I've seen one:-) Thanks Arnold In The Smokies DW1121 --- In email@example.com, John Liss john@ wrote:
