I need to open CHM files inside an IE Browser window. Is it possible, Is there a plugin or something using which I can open CHM files inside a Browser window like we do with pdf files?

This is because I need to track when the CHM file was opened and when it was closed as well. Thats why I need to open it inside the browser.

    Sorry I was hoping the above link would jump to the correct part of the page.

    On that page look for
    "How can I avoid the "Open or Save" dialog box when I access my compiled HTML Help .CHM file from our web server, so the file just opens automatically?"
