Just a Heads up about the help files

5 posts in this topic

Any of the help pages that display in the following manner

OnExitFunc (Option)

will not link to the page and will display the following error

Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:

You are not connected to the Internet.

The website is encountering problems.

There might be a typing error in the address.

I have already decompiled the help file and I'll take a look for the problem in the next day or two. It doesn't appear to be causing a problem with anything except those functions defined as options.

Further to my last post. Yes indeed!! Microsofts record goes unblemished. :mellow: Now they have managed to break bookmarks in compiled help projects. Page links are fine, it's only the bookmarks. I generated a bug report with MS on the subject and if they run true to form I'm sure they'll have it fixed in a couple of years. In all fairness it is a Beta release and we know what that can be like. The biggest delay will be when they try to convince us that it was done as a security measure. :)

While we wait for that to happen it would appear that the only solution is going to be to create separate pages for each of those bookmarks (34 I think) or to change all of the links to point only to the page and not the bookmark.

Or uninstall IE beta 2 to fix. This is a Microsoft problem with poor code by sounds of it

I installed and ran IE beta 1 for quite some time, I liked it for extra features, but I had extra bugs also with url links in applications broken and all the rest. I finally uninstalled not to long back, and now everything is functioning how it should.

Bottom line from my viewpoint. It is Microsoft Beta bugs, and Microsoft should fix them before anything else.

They seem to have fixed it in the Mar 20/06 release.

I can confirm that as well. I installed IE7 Beta 2 today (on XP SP2, fully patched), and no problems here.
