SBuilderX Help.chm will not Open

Hi,
When I try to open the help file in SBuilderX, it will not open. I know that in Sbuilder for 2004, I put the help.chm file in the Html Folder. But there's no Html Folder in SBuilderX.

This type of file, chm, or Compiled Hyper-Text Markup Language, is a compressed form of the ubiquitous html format. Since Microsoft created chm, all Microsoft O.S. releases can open it. Just double-click on the chm file if you are unable to open it from within SBuilderX.

I don't remember, but the chm Help file might be in a Help directory, making it available from within SBuilderX. I shall check later when the power comes back on. :D

Best regards.
Luis

Hi Luis,
I think I know what the problem is and I have it resolved now. I just happen to noticed that when I clicked on the Help button, a Security Warning window would pop-up. Here's what to do:

From within SBuilder or SBuilderX, click on the Help button. If it is a security issue that's keeping the file from opening, you should get a Security Warning pop-up window. When you click Run, you will get another pop-up. In that window, it will tell you where the Help file is placed or installed. Close the program and go to where the Help file is installed. Right click on the SBuilder.chm file and then click Properties. At the bottom right, you should see a button that says "Unblock." Click that button, click Apply, then click OK. The file should now work from within Sbuilder. You'll have to do this for both SBuilder and SBuilderX. It looks like the file was being blocked by the Windows Security.

Ken.
