Subject:HTML Help From:Steve Taylor <breakaway -at- BREAKAWAYNET -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 5 Feb 1998 09:48:54 -0600
Is anyone working with HTML help yet? I have converted two printed manual
to HTML Help, using Microsoft's new HTML Help Workshop 1.1 and everything
Now here's my problem. When I move the help files to my intranet, and
attempt to insert the ActiveX hhctrl.ocx control two things occur:
1. Front Page 98 tells me my ActiveX control is not registered, even when I
do it manually.
2. When I create the HTML page in HTML Help Workshop with the ActiveX
control, everything is fine (except that FrontPage can't find the toc file,
but it works fine in IE 4.0), except for this: I can see and use the table
of contents on my local system, where my personal web server is located,
but on another computer on our LAN, the toc file is not to be found
(whereas everything else is ok). I've checked relative path statements and
tried changing them, including the code base for the ActiveX, but nothing
works so far.
