change help browser

Is there a possibility to change the browser which LabView uses to show the Help content?


In my case I'm using Linux with the Linux version of LabView and chose a wrong application when I was asked to choose the browser application.

So now nothing happens if I press the help button and a window to choose the browser application doesn't appear any more.

This problem is related to the default browser LabVIEW calls when opening the help window. In Linux, the LabVIEW help is accessed by opening HTML files via a web browser.

To fix this problem please go to:
