Hi, firstly this is a great bit of software, thanks a lot! :)

I am documenting a DLL project and every page is coming up with "Page cannot be displayed (cannot find server of DNS error)" except for the first page which displays "Action cancelled". I'm getting all the items in the left pane and search works (I think) but nothing will display in the main window. The FAQ says this can happen if you have # characters in your paths, but this isn't the case here, any ideas?

Thanks a lot.

It can also happen if you run it from a network share due to a security patch that restricts access to the HTML help viewer. If you copy it to your hard drive, it should work. There's a registry entry you can make that will allow them to run from network shares too. I'll put this in the FAQ for the next release:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\HTMLHelp\1.x\ItssRestrictions]
"MaxAllowedZone"=dword:00000001
