Invalid help (.chm) file
Any attempt to access VB6 help now results in the following message.
"Attempting to use an invalid compiled help (.chm) file"
I used Google for some clues and I learned that .chm files have something to do with HTML but I did not see any remedies listed.
Do I need to re-install VB6 and/or the MSDN Library or do I need to download a patch from somewhere? I'm hoping someone else here is familiar with the problem and the solution.
I would reinstall the October 2001 MSDN Library (the last version that's compatible with VB6), or if you don't have that, the version of MSDN that was included with VB6.
Please post questions to the forums, where others may benefit.
I do not offer free assistance by e-mail. Thank you!
How do you display the help from VB?
In your post, you say "now results in the followinf message" Does the "now" implies that it was working some time before?
How is the chm file generated?
"There are two ways to write error-free programs. Only the third one works."
I have a similar problem in that when I installed another product, it seemed to "disconnect" the help reference from VB6 (error is "an unknown error has occurred"). I imagine if I reinstalled MSDN, it would work again, but I just haven't bothered.
I display help from the both the Help Menu and sometimes using F1 and Yes, it WAS working the last time I used it. I've never even heard of a .chm file before today. All I know is that it's somehow connected to accessing vb help.
I will take Phil's advice an reinstall the MSDN Libray and hope the solves the problem. Thanks
