Help Services broken by Service Pack 3 RRS feed

  • Question

  • C# application using .chm file created with HTML Help Workshop. .NET framework 2.0. Solution built with Visual Studio 2005. Windows XP - Service Pack 3.
    Code works when located on the local machine. However, when run across the network, when content is requested, the Help window displays with the Contents, Index, etc. tab frame on the left, but on the right where the content should be is the message 'Action Cancelled'. If you click on either the Contents or Index tabs, it displays the items that were input when building with HTML Help Workshop. What is not showing is the content located in the html files provided to HTML Help Workshop. On a Service Pack 2 machine, can get it to run correctly by setting the property in the .NET framework configuration to trust all code. This does not work on the Service Pack 3 machine. Found the workarounds to 896358 suggested for Service Pack 2. Tried updating the registry setting MaxAllowedZone to 1 (we only need it to work on an intranet), and specifying the location in UrlAllowList. This has no effect.

  • Shrikanat,
    Thank you for your suggestion! I posted this on the forum you suggested yesterday morning. It went all day with no responses - the last time I looked it had 7 views, 0 replies. This morning when I checked I couldn't find it. I didn't get an email that it was being moved to a different forum. I just did a search for "Service Pack 3 Help Services" and this item was the only one to show up. Possibly I'm just not seeing it - previously it was right above the "Memory 'Leaks'" question -  but I've looked a couple times.
