Hi, Svetlana, and welcome,
This typically happens when one of the DLLs that the help compiler uses is incorrectly registered. To fix the problem, try refreshing the registration of all HTML Help 1.x DLLs with MJ's Help Diagnostics.
i tried to refresh the registration of all HTML Help 1.x DLLs with MJ's Help Diagnostics, but it didn't help.
"Search" is still not working.
1) Can you verify that you have enabled full-text search in your help project?
2) What is the language of your help project, and the default system language of the computer on which you're compiling it? Problems can arise when compiling help files in some non-Western European languages. See this page for details:
3) Does the search feature work in other help files on your computer?
4) What error messages do you get when searching?
5) Are you using a full-text search "stop list" to prevent the compiler from including commonly occurring words in the search index?
2) The help project is in English, and the default system language is English as well.
3) This feature worked in previously generated CHMs for this project.
4) The Help window says “No topics found”
If you feel comfortable sending your help file to me, I'd be more than happy to take a closer look at it. At this distance, it's hard to see where the problem is without taking a proper look at the file. Ideally, I'd also like to see the HTML Help project (.hhp) file for this help file.

thanks Pete! what's your email address?
One thing to note is that you probably need to recompile the CHM files affected after re-registering the DLL(s). I found that was that case when my search began failing. Older CHM files worked just dandy with search and newer files failed. Once I registered the DLL again, I had to recompile the affected CHM files to make them work properly.
