you gotta run the help file viewer first then the help file as a command line argument. or use the dos "start" command then your help file then it should run.

Like this:

$file = @scriptdir & "\KHA.chm"

run("start " & $file)

I think spyrorocks is having problems with his own helpfile. This might work :

$file = @ProgramFilesDir & "\AutoIt3\AutoIt.chm"
Run(@ComSpec & ' /c start " " ' & $file & '"', "", @SW_HIDE)

try thisa:

$helpfile = '"' & @scriptdir & '\KHA.chm"'

run("C:\windows\hh.exe " & $helpfile)

try that i think it should work.
