.chm files for Reference Documents won't open on Windows 7

Jun 19, 2014 at 6:11 PM

I've downloaded the .chm file and I ended up getting a screen that says "Navigation to the webpage was canceled. What you can try: Retype the address".

I'm using Windows 7. I've googled for the solution (i.e. http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11438634/opening-a-chm-file-produces-navigation-to-the-webpage-was-canceled) I can't locate the 'unblocked' button for Windows 7 even after following their instructions.

Any help would be appreciated!

To get the Unblock button, one needs to be in the administrator account.

Hi awong,

Just an FYI, I'm working on getting hosted reference documentation setup. Hopefully it won't be too long, I'm trying to figure out hosting location options right now :).

Then our documentation will be much easier to consume and up to date.

Hi Steve,

That's wonderful! I'll be waiting with bated breath.

Hi awong,

It is taking longer than I planned to settle on a hosting location. In the mean time I've checked in a doxygen configuration file, public_apis_doxyfile, under the Release folder in the development branch. Once you have doxygen installed execute the following to create html reference docs locally:
doxygen public_apis_doxyfile

Ok it is still going to be a while until I get a permanent hosting location. In the mean time you can generate the documentation locally like I mentioned before. I also uploaded the html documentation on to CodePlex, replacing the previously used chm file.

At least now you can easily download up to date html reference documentation.
