Calling a .chm file from help menu?

Recommended Posts

If $msg = $helpitem Then Run(@ScriptDir & "\wizard.chm")

I'm trying to open up a .chm file when the help > using session wizard msg box is clicked in the GUI app I've created.

I've searched the site for 1 hour straight, reading through various posts and can't seem to find an answer. I know that the supported extensions for run does not seem to support .chm but is there a way to call up a help file?

Please advise.

Thanks,

Before someone says to read the FAQ, I did but just couldn't figure out the syntax. After 90 minutes though, I did find something that helped and I figured it out.

If $msg = $helpitem Then Run ( @ComSpec & " /c start " & "wizard.chm" )

FYI for anyone else who is searching.
