I have CHM help files which I should be able to use from network drive in Windows Server 2008 R2 server.

I found that CHM files are blocked by default from network drives and they are working only from local drives.

I have tried to add MaxAllowedZone and UrlAllowList registry entries. These both sets have helped me that Im able to open these cmh files if I double click these chm files. However, still when I have my application open and I press F1 I get error message: "Navigation to the webpage was canceled". This is very weird.

I attach you the pics how it looks when I just open some chm file from network file by double clicking chm file (when it works) and what happen when I press F1 in application. Does anyone has any idea?

Thanks in advance :) Press F1 in application Double click same CHM in explorer Double click same CHM in explorer Double click same CHM in explorer
