Distribute VS2010 style to a VS2012 client

Oct 22, 2012 at 12:53 PM


Is there anything special that needs to be done on a client machine when distributing a help file with VS2010 style to a VS2012 client?

Everything works on my developer machine, but on an other client we added the help to Help Viewer 2.0, and all help content links just displays the raw html...

Using the latest build...

It is probably an IE security setting issue.  See this thread in the MSDN Dev Doc forum:

Thanks, noticed that all content displayed html, even MS-help contents.

My "client" machine was actually a Server 2008 R2, and it had IE Enhanced Security Configuration enabled. When disabled that, it works!!!
