Hi, Drew and Chris,

Would you guys post what you come up with? I'm wrestling with the Help/Web
site issue now, too.
Thanks,

Drew,

If the application is really a website then you cannot serve compiled html
help. If Help needs to be served across the Web and viewed with the user's
browser, you need an uncompiled solution. Tell me what authoring tool you
are using and I'll make some suggestions.

Chris

Hello,

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!

Thanks,

Drew Krause
