VC Infoviewer wont load sample files with IE4

Infoviewer uses IE to display its help.

When you try to load the sample files for viewing, it brings up a little dialog box, listing the files, and asking if you want to copy or view them etc.

This works fine under IE3, but causes an error with IE4. If you uninstall IE4 and reinstall IE3 it works fine.

Is this a bug, or is there a way to get it working?

Developer Studio and Internet Explorer are incompatible( I guess because Developer Studio was realesed when there was only beta version of IE4. So you if you use VC++ or other part of Developer studio you will be given error message when trying to copy file. The only way is to copy them manually. All sample programs are stored on Developer Studio CD under VC/Samples directory.

Thanks. So they are.
You would think the evil giant would make its _own_ software compatible.
