How do I view the help file?

If you're having problems viewing the help file, it might be because you downloaded the .CHM file with Internet Explorer.

This is what the help file should look like when viewed:

If you downloaded the file with Internet Explorer, it probably looks like this:

Internet Explorer marks the file as "potentially dangerous" since it came from another computer. When you try to view a .CHM file that is marked like this, Internet Explorer refuses to show the content (a .CHM file is nothing more than a bunch of packaged-together HTML files).

To fix this problem, find the .CHM file on your hard disk. Right click it, and choose Properties. You should see a window that looks like this:

Click the "Unblock" button, then click the "OK" button. Now you should be able to view the .CHM file properly.
