    Hi Tieferrow :).

    It looks as if you haven't got any application associated for .chm filetypes as your error states. Can you have a look to see if in fact there is an application associated? To do this, follow these steps:

    > Open up "My Computer".

    > Click on "Tools" and select "Folder Options".

    > Click on "File Types" and scroll down until you find the extension CHM.

    > Highlight CHM and you should then be able to see what application it opens with (if any).It should say that it opens with the "Microsoft HTML Help Executable".


    Please post back your findings.

    Regards,
    Jade.

    Hmmm, check to see if hh.exe is in your c:\windows folder. If it is, then it may be that required file/s haven't registered correctly. To register, do this:

    > Click on START and then RUN
    > Type this into the box (without the quotes) - "regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\hhctrl.ocx" (see screenshot if in doubt).
    >Then click OK

    Does that fix the problem? If not you may want to try this little application called MJ's Help Diagnostics. Hope it goes well.
