Can’t see .chm (help files) contents ?


Have you ever seen this kind of message when you try to see a help file (.chm). The same files sometimes are displayed in WindowsXP without a problem. Vista opens the file, but fails with a “The address is not Valid” error. Even after confirmation to allow the content of the file.

The Solution Is pretty Simple…

A solution i found somewhere

  • Double-click the .chm file.
  • In the Open File-Security Warning dialog box, click to clear the Always ask before opening this file check box.
  • Click Open.

The Solution that worked for me is

  • Right-click the CHM file, and then click Properties.
  • Click Unblock.
  • Double-click the .chm file to open the file.
