Drew Krause asked:

| I've compiled a .chm html-help file for use in a web application. When
| on the website, clicking on its link doesn't launch the help, but rather
| pops up a 'Save' box to save the help as an .exe file.
|
| Has anyone else encountered this? I couldn't find any documentation on
| this problem. All leads appreciated!

Unfortunately, this is just the way it is. This is one of the several
reasons that CHM files are not recommended for Web-based online help.
