CHMs are designed to be installed locally. Outlook, et al., identify
CHMs as a potentially dangerous file type.

IMHO if you want to have your help on a network server, look into
something other than CHM, such as HTML-based help, WebWorks Help,
WebHelp, etc.

If you find a way to easily acces CHMs from a network, please post to
the list! I've never been able to get it to work, so I've always used
Webhelp as the output. In the past, when I tried CHM from a server, I
would ALWAYS get a download dialog, even if it had already been
downloaded. That issue might have been resolved, but I just switched to
web help and never really looked back....
