    I downloaded the Help files for OpenAccess, but when I open any of the ".chm" files (e.g. telerik.openaccess.programmers.chm), while I can see the table of contents, the actual content screens are all empty.

    I know these are Microsoft's format of "compiled help".  What do I need to do on my Vista system to be able to use these files properly?

    TIA!

    Hi MWM,
    Please try the following:

    Run Windows Explorer, right-click on the CHM file, and select Properties from the popup menu. Click on the Unblock button immediately below the Advanced button on the General page (there should be one available). Click Apply to show the content. Once the CHM file has been unblocked, the Unblock button disappears.
