Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Help Files in Applications

I created a "help" button in a form and coded this button's click event as:
{ help }
The code { set help to MyHelp.chm } is included in the main program before the "do form."

When I make an application through Setup wizard and install it in a computer that has no VFP, the help button does not display the help window and doesn't give an error message either.

What's going on?

It sounds like you may not have included the HTML Help Engine when building the distribution in the Setup Wizard. On the second page of the Setup Wizard (the step titled "Specify Components") you'll find a checkbox with the caption "HTML Help Engine." Make sure to check it if you are distributing HTML Help (CHM) files.
