          This is normally caused by a Micosoft security patch. Is the CHM file located on a network drive? If so, click here to see your options.

            Welcome to our community, apollo321

            What Colum offered is certainly valid. However, based on your screen capture it would seem you are possibly clicking the Home item and being puzzled as to why the Home page cannot be displayed. If this is the case, you need to configure the Home item to display the page you want.

            In RoboHelp 6 you accomplish it as follows:
            Expand the Windows pseudo folder
            Double-click the CHM window and you should see the Window properties
            Click the Advanced Properties... button
            Complete the field labeled "Home".
            Recompile the project

            Note that you may really put just about anything in the field. You may insert a web address such as http://www.google.com or you may point at a topic inside your help system. If you want this area to open your default topic, you would type the path and file name of the default topic.

            Hopefully this helps... Rick
