Thread: Helpfile path changed

    Sometimes when I am accessing context sensitive help in my application I get
    a message saying help file could not be found. It tries to seacrch for helpfile
    in "c:\mydocuments" directory. The name of the helpfile is correct but the
    path where it tries to search for the help file(ie. "c:\mydocuments")is different
    from app.path. Shouldn't the help file be always picked from app.path? How
    could the helpfile path be changed?

    Use the HelpFile Property of the App Object to Specify the Help File Path.

    I am setting app.helpfile during design time. I set it in the "Project Properties dialog box". It is not changed during run time. The problem is that the name of the help file is same but somehow during the course of running my application the path where it searches for the help file changes to "c:\document" don't know how?

    If you only specifiy the Filename, it will look for it in the Current Directory, so include the Full Path when setting the App.HelpFile Property.
