Solved! Go to Solution.
Can you browse to C:\Program Files\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2010\help ?
Does that folder exist?
Is there a file called "lvanlsconcepts.chm"?
Can you open it (double click)?
Do you get a window that opens and a message that looks like the following?

If you type anything (ie: the letter "a") in the "Type in the keyword to find:" area (on the left), does it populate the window below it with all sorts of topics that start with the letters that you typed?
I can browse the folder & file
when i am trying to open the file
This is the error.
"If you type anything (ie: the letter "a") in the "Type in the keyword to find:" area (on the left), does it populate the window below it with all sorts of topics that start with the letters that you typed?"
It does populate but when i click one of the (intrested) items, help is unable to show full detals about the keyword. cursor behaves as if it is loading.
nothing shows up and remains still. Please help me.
Do all of the other features of LabVIEW appear to be working?
Have you tried closing then reopening LabVIEW to see whether the issue still reoccurs? And if you press Ctrl+h on your block diagram does the context help load?
Has the LabVIEW help previously worked? It could be an option to reinstall the software?
In the meantime you could try searching for things using the LabVIEW help online.
Hope the issue gets fixed soon!
This software is recently installed and I guess it is first time that Im checking it.
I closed the entire Labview and reopened again, also I restated my PC.still it behaves in the same way.
Do i have to completely reinstall the software????
As it's never worked before, there is a chance that you may have not installed the program fully i.e. including the documentation.
Rather than a reinstallation, you can just repair the installation.
Assuming you are running on a Windows operating system, go to the "Add/Remove Programmes" or "Programs & Features" menus. Select "National Instruments Software" from the list, before selecting which software to repair (i.e. LabVIEW) and click repair, then follow the instructions.
Hopefully this will add the help options that you appear to be missing!
This is generally due to the corrupt hhctrl.ocx file in your system 32 folder (assuming c:\windows\system32). Navigate to this folder and delete the file.
Download a fresh ocx file here.
Then run this command regsvr32 c:\windows\system32\hhctrl.ocx in your command prompt.
This should solve the issue
