View CHM over a network security issue on Win7 64bit machine

Postby Bluefin on Mon Nov 12, 2012 4:02 pm

I'm having the network security issue on win7 64 machines: I can't view my generated CHM files.

Is there a registry mod that fixes this issue on win7 64 and enables me to view the files over a network? I know that it exists for previous generation machines, and also for win7 32bit.

Any help much appreciated.
Cheers.

You can't view CHM files over a network. That's a Windows security issue. CHMs can only be viewed on the local computer.

Found the instructions here:

For W7 64 bit it should be the same registry change. Keep in mind that this works only for the system you made the change on and I suggest not to recommend this change to end-users. The reason for Microsoft to disable this feature is that they did not want to fix a security vulnerability in the CHM viewer. That means changing the registry to enable this feature again will expose the problem.
