Start by pressing your Caps Lock key so the keyboard light goes out.

Does it work from the scite editor, pressing F1 ?

f1 is not working either

What OS and Autoit version?

Check if "C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt.chm" exists and invoke it from Explorer.

Reinstall Autoit.

Do other CHM files work for you?

i'm using "XP" and the latest version of autoit.

i checkd the "AutoIt.chm" file and it dosn't exists. i dont know what to do.

bdw thank you for your help..

Autoit does not seem to have installed correctly, uninstall/re-install, see if that fixes it.

IT'S STILL NOT WORKING. ;)

$Open = RegRead("HKCR\AutoIt3Script\Shell\Open\Command", "")
$Edit = RegRead("HKCR\AutoIt3Script\Shell\Edit\Command", "")
$Run = RegRead("HKCR\AutoIt3Script\Shell\Run\Command", "")
$Default = RegRead("HKCR\AutoIt3Script\Shell", "")
$FixedOpen = RegRead("HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.au3", "Application")

No it didn't open

I tried hitting F1 and clicking it from the start menu, nothing happened.

I have realised this aswell. If the au3 script isn't saved then the help file will not start. Save the au3 file and try.
