Can not install .mshc file

I've generated MSHelpViewer Docs and wanted to install it with the Hel Library Manager.

But when I select Add contents from disk and browse the .msha file (directly from the output folder), the Next button stays grayed.
I use this function for the VS docs as well, and there it works fine.

I use:
- Win7 Ultimate x64 SP1
- VS 2010 Pro SP1
- Sandcastle June 2010 (2.6.2062.1)

It's a limitation of the current help library manager.  The MSHA file must be called HelpContentSetup.msha.  Rename your setup file and it will accept it.

That did the trick. Thanks a lot.

One more question: Is there a reason why my help file needs admin rights to be added?

It's a requirement of the help library manager.  It always presents a security alert to confirm installation of unsigned help content.

I can live with that. Thank you again,
