How to access help files
Posted on 2004-09-29
I am new to VB.NET 2002. I have a question about using CHM "Help Files" and I haven't found information anywhere on the Internet that I have understood or that has helped me so far. When my program is installed the packager will ask the user what directory they want the software installed to. Default will be C:\Program Files\Lexco and the support files including the help file will be in C:\Program Files\Lexco\Support Files but if the user changes it to another directory then I would need my program to be able to find the Support Files directory for the Help.chm file so it could be used.
My question: In my code how to I account for this when pointing to my support files such as the Help.chm? A simple commented working example using the F1 Help Provider would be great.
