CHM Compile Question

Postby NYBlue » Wed Jan 07, 2009 9:31 pm

Hi All,

I have compiled my documentation into a CHM.

I put it on a server. (In my case, my S:\\ drive).

Now, it can't find the associated html files. (It looks for them on my C:\\ drive.) I get the message "Navigation to the webpage was canceled" when I open the chm (and get the default page.)

Is there any way around this?

This is due to a limitation in the CHM viewer. The pages are included in the .chm file, but cannot be viewed if it is on a network drive, or via a UNC path.

There is a workaround here http://www.technipages.com/unable-to-open-chm-files-on-a-network-drive.html which should fix the problem.
