    how to link to chm topic from a doc - urgent

    TechDoc Jeanne Level 1
      Hi all,


      My marketing people are creating some materials that need to include links to an installed chm. The doc with the links will be installed in the same folder as the chm. This doc has to be finalized today.

      Can I create a link from the doc to a topic in the chm that will show the topic in the Help window?

      I have already created a link that works, in this format:
      mk:@MSITStore:C:\Program%20Files\mycompany\myapp\myhelp.chm::/mytopic.htm

      But there are 2 problems:

      1. It only shows me the topic alone (no toc etc.)
      Can I create a link that will show the topic in the Help window?

      2. I don't know the path where the user will install the software. I do know that this doc will be in the same folder as the chm, but this link (without path) doesn't work:
      mk:@MSITStore:myhelp.chm::/mytopic.htm

      Any help would be appreciated!!

      Thanks,
      Jeanne
