Hi Anil. CHM files require as a minimum Internet Explorer version 4 installed. This was released (I think) with Windows 98 so my guess is that this is not installed on the Win95 machine. To be honest CHM files weren't around with Win95, we used good ol' Winhelp back then. As a result I'm not sure if there are other implications of running a CHM on a Win95 machine.
Thanks a lot Colum!
You can run HTML Help files on windows 95 machines, but you will need to install an add on, DCOM95, on each PC the view that accesses the help.
This add on is no longer supported.
My recollection is that if you get .chms running on windows 95, they run very slowly indeed. If you really do need to support windows 95, it may be worth considering Robohelp for Word's Windows 2000 flavour of help which allows you to produce a .chm lookalike which runs at a decent speed. You will need to install a few .dlls on each end users PC but it will be worth it.
