Can't view manual CHM file
« on: February 06, 2010, 06:38:03 am »
I have just download the CHM file of the C::B Manual. But it seems I can't view them. see the screen shot:

Anything wrong? I'm using Windows Vista EN basic.

If some piece of memory should be reused, turn them to variables (or const variables).
If some piece of operations should be reused, turn them to functions.
If they happened together, then turn them to classes.

When downloading CHM files you need to ensure you mar them as "safe" in the properties of the file (use the explorer, right-click on the file and select properties). In addition: CHM files do not work at all if they are in a path that contains a has ("#").

Same problem here!
if i download it in chrome browser it names the file manual_en.download and not *.chm
same happens if i say save link as

if did download it and rename it to *.chm .. this was working but...
the table of contents i mean the treee with all the chapters was displayed but if i click on any chapter it says that the page cant be found

so i did download the PDF this was on google books and the download from there did work well

i think something with the CHM file is wrong :(

Thanks morten.

In the context menu(Windows Vista EN), select the property menu item. Then, in the first panel, there's a "unlock" button , click this button, then it works.

ok i found the same button in windows xp
download chm help ... it will donload manual_de.download or manual_en.download
rename it to manual_xx.chm
right click it and open properties
unlock it with the button

(i never saw this button before in my whole life :D)

in the english manual you go and read from begining to end

in the german manual you go and read until chapter 3
and from there to the end it will be in english and not german

i also found the manual in the file directory of codeblocks in the docs directory
its also a chm file and in english and it works without any problems :D
