VS2010 Help

Hello Together,

I'm using the latest Sandcastle-June 2010 Release and SHFB v1.9.1.0.

If I compile my project I get a MS Help Viewer output (mshc and msha), not so bad so far...

But if I install it by using HelpLibraryManagerLauncher.exe (interactive or silent) the result is allways the same: The Help is viewed, but there are NO icons and NO scroll bars.

Is this an known problem or has somebody an idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,

Make sure you are using the VS2005 presentation style.  Hana and Prototype are not supported for MS Help Viewer output.  I believe using either of those styles will cause the issue that you are seeing.

Hi Eric,

I used "Prototype" as presentation type before. I changed it now to "VS2005" and everything looks fine!

Thank you for this Hint!
