When I burn the .chm file on the CD, it only opens the main window. When I test the CD by clicking on the .chm file, the left pane information (which is all of my topics) does not display. I am only putting the .chm file on the CD. Not sure what I am doing wrong. I know I am not including an autorun... how exactly do I do that?
Question: When you open the same chm file on your local hard drive (and I do hope that is where the project is, and where you are generating the chm), do you get the same result?
The attached code should be copied and pasted into an instance of Notepad. After you do this, change your .CHM file name and save the file as autorun.inf. Then make sure you include the autorun.inf file on the CD.
Note: Make sure your .CHM filename is only 8 characters long. For example, don't use My Wonderful CHM.CHM. Instead, use something like WondrCHM.CHM. (Longer filenames often prevent autorun from working correctly)
Hope this helps a tad... Rick
You had this problem earlier as I recall. There is no reason you can't open a CHM file from a CD. You will need to do a comparison of the file on CD and the one on your hard drive. There are programs available to compare two files but if that isn't immediately available answer the following questions. Are they the same? Are they the same size? Can you copy from the CD to the hard drive? Does it work then?
I Love You Rick! This worked. Thank you. kt
