Hi All,

I downloaded WindowsController from
http://www.mentalis.org/soft/class.qpx?id=7 and unzipped the download into
three files, one of them "Org.Mentalis.Files.WindowsController.chm".

When I double-click the .chm filename in Windows Explorer, a normal help
window opens with the usual tabs on the left pane. The Contents tab
displays a hierarchy of folders and items. But the right pane invariably
displays:

"The page cannot be displayed
The page you are looking for is currently unavailable. The Web site
might be experiencing technical difficulties, or you may need to adjust your
browser settings.
"

I'm running WinXP-Pro/SP2 with current updates from Windows Update. My
account is a member of Administrators.

Any ideas?

TIA,
Richard
