Thanks for replying, but as I said earlier, I do not want to use a Shortcut, but wish to only link to the PDF. The more I think about it, the more I believe I wish to embed the PDF inside the CHM file, so long as it preserves the formatting and launches Adobe when the link is clicked. Is there any way to do this? If not, is there a simple way to launch an HTML file that contains the PDF links or maybe even an explorer window? I am not willing to use scripts due to most of my users having very high security settings on thier computer.
As I understand it you can add the pdf as a baggage file then use a relative url to reference it. It's worked for me in the past.
.pdfs have always been quirky and the only reliable way I've gotten them to open is with scripts but since you want to avoid scripts it seems the only solution is right there in your first post - "when I compile using HTML help workshop, it works like a charm!" I always use HTML Help Workshop to compile, though I use RoboHelp for organizing and editing my project. Is there any reason you cannot use this solution?
