View Full Version : Help File will not work when installing.

11-18-2002, 10:49 PM
I use the InstallShield Express for Foxpro to create a single file setup.exe. It work great - so far. My Foxpro appl runs perfectly when installed on new machine.

The problem I have is that I include my own custom help file created with MicroSoft HTML Help Workshop. It creates a .chm file.

That file gets installed with my app.

If I click on that installed file it comes up and works OK.

If I try to use it from my APP nothing happens.

On my personal system it does come up from my app OK.

I click on the HTML htmlvfp7support library to merge in. Filename = VfpHTMLHelp.msm.

I must be leaving something out of the run time version I am installing with your product.

Any Ideas?

The msm file you want is vfp7HTLHelp.msm and can be found in \program files\common files\merge modules. This module installs foxhhelp7.exe/foxhelpps7.dll.

The vfpHTMLHelp.msm installs foxhhelp.exe/foxhhelpps.dll which I think were required for VFP6.
