TMG v9.5

Tried accessing help in vcf and got an error. I vaguely recall that there was a problem with vcf help in v9 and that there was a file I could download.

If so, where can I find it? If not, how,can I access help?

With File Explorer, navigate to the 'C:\ProgramData\The Master Genealogist v9' folder.

 

Double-click the vcf2.chm file to view the help.

 

You could make a 'shortcut' on your desktop to this file by right-clicking on the help file and dragging it to your Desktop and selecting 'Create shortcuts here'.

 

(VCF could no longer be programmed when it became necessary to use a .CHM help file (rather than the .HLP file that VCF uses). I created the vcf2.chm file and Bob included it in the installer so that it would be available outside of VCF.)

Jim

 

I found only one help file and it does not open.  I get an error saying the help file is not supported.  And there was no VCF file with the CHM extension.

 

Never mind.  Clicking while in the folder and desk top did not work.  Clicking clicking from the start menu where I had pinned it did.  Go figure.
