Subject:online help: .chm appears as .exe (?) From:drkrause -at- MINDSPRING -dot- COM To:techwr-l Date:Sun, 14 Nov 1999 8:52:13
I've built a compiled html help file (.chm) for a web application. When we
put it up on our website, it doesn't launch -- instead, the link to it
brings up a 'Save' box, asking the user to save the file as an .exe.
Has anyone else encountered this? I haven't found this problem in the
documentation ... any leads would be appreciated!
