Lost use of help file following new installation

3 posts in this topic

I've installed AutoIt on a new PC. AutoIt works fine, but I've somehow lost access to the contents of the help file (via F1 from SciTE, for example).

I've read numerous posts, but can't match with the configuration I use: everything is on the path C:\AutoIt3 ... and I used the Zip method to install the full version of SciTE.

I've double-checked the my registry settings with Get_Au3_RegistrySettings.au3

Any suggestions of what to check will be appreciated.

I'm running on Win7 64-bit.

qwert,

From a quick Google search:

Problem: You open a CHM but you don't see your content in the right-hand pane of the window. You see a cryptic browser message "Navigation to the webpage was canceled" or similar.

Solution: Right-click the CHM file, select Properties, then click the "Unblock" button

Although I wasn't getting any message, your suggestion worked.

That condition must have been set by the way I set up the SciTE directory under \AutoIt3.  But I've never seen such a thing in 20 years of Windows use.

Thanks very much for your help.
