Try right-clicking the .chm, selecting Properties, and then clicking the Unblock button on the General tab.


I have a .chm file. When it is stored with the source files on my hard drive, I double-click the .chm and see my lovely help system all complete.

When I copy the entire directory, with source files and subdirectories, to the server, and double-click the .chm file, every single topic returns this message:Â "The address is not valid."

What is doing on?

I thought the whole purpose of .chm files was to bundle everything together so that it can travel anywhere.

In fact, I should be able to blow away all the development files and have that .chm file still work.

What is going on?
