    HTMLHELP (Html Workshop 4.74)

    This is probably the wrong forum for this. But maybe someone can point me in the right direction. I am new to using HTML Workshop. But I have been playing around with it and have a pretty good handle on how it works. I compiled my very simple help file into a .chm file. No problem there. I compiled it at home and send the file to work. Now when I launch the file (from Excel or Explorer) in any ordinary folder it does not show the contents of the htm files in the right hand pane. It has the old "Action cancelled" message or it's just blank. However, if I move my compiled chm file to C:Program FilesHTML Help Workshop, it works just fine. What file or files am I missing? I thought these compiled help files could run on their own without other dlls or exes.

    Thanks for the prompt reply, Alan. I don't seem to have problems with any other .chm files however. Only this one I emailed from home. I'll keep trying.
