TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
The real answer: Don't open CHM files from a URL. It doesn't work, no
matter how many knowledgebase and Web links to the contrary. If you do
get it to work, it will be so flaky it's not worth trying to roll out for
Instead, convert to HTML-based help, and use a standard URL that will
work with any browser and doesn't depend on Microsoft setting a new
standard that actually works. There are many HTML-based help systems
available if you don't want to roll your own pages, and most of them
(certainly WebWorks Help and eHelp's
whatever-RoboHelp-is-called-this-week product) allow you to open the
entire help system or just a specific topic as needed.
