Win 2003 SP1 - .chm fails to open viewer frame through intranet UR

Discussion in 'Windows Server' started by FrankPalinkas, Apr 8, 2005.

  1. Hi friends,

    When opening a .chm file located on an intranet Win Server 2003 with SP1
    installed, the .chm opens but the viewer area shows an "Action Cancelled"
    error message.
    The .chm opens properly on the Server itself, but not through the network.

    Can anyone advise a fix (registry maybe) to get the .chm to show properly
    when called through the intranet?

    thanks,
    Frank

    It has to be served up as an .htm file via IIS.

  3. Hehe, great reply :-/ So you say that all those poor man that had hh.exe
    working over unc share now have to decompile ther chm's and host generated
    pages on IIS server ? plz, be more serious. Well, that may be unbelievable,
    but some of us use win2k3 as a development boxes and hh.exe not working over
    unc share is a real pain.
