Help file

6 posts in this topic

Im just writing some hotkeys to my most used apps and I cant seem to get the help file to open by either of the following

Run("C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt.chm", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

Or by manually creating a shortcut in the c:\ called Help which points to C:\Program Files\AutoIt3\AutoIt.chm and running it with

Run("C:\Help.ink", "", @SW_MAXIMIZE)

Im assuming its because its a .chm file and it has to be opened with Microsoft® HTML Help Executable

So how do I open the help file without actually clicking on it.

I dont know where

Microsoft® HTML Help Executable

is stored
