help file not found

Hi,

 

In LabVIEW, I can't see the help information about TestStand API. When I right-click a property or a method and select the help for this property/method, the following window is displayed

Indeed, the path is wrong. There should be only on Doc subdirectory in the path. But how can I change this path ? or solve this problem with another mean ?

 

Thanks in advance

Laurent

Hi Laurent,

 

I have looked extensively and could not find such an error ever reported. Were you able to solve it?

Re-installing TestStand could be a solution, maybe insuring you are installing the latest patches/updates.

If you can't fix the issue this way please let me know so we can investigate deeper, I would need some other info like your OS version, maybe the pther SW installed.

 

Thanks

Hi M-Junior

 

For the moment, I don't plan to reinstall TestStand or LabVIEW as it is time consuming. When I need help on TestStand API in LabVIEW, I open TestStand and look for help in the TestStand help.

This is not very convenient so if you have other ideas, I'm interesting in

I send you a capture of my configuration of NI softwares. I'm on Windows 10, release 1709

 

Regards

Laurent

Hi, 

 

Is your machine a Windows 64-bit machine? If so can you post what is the value of the following registry key - Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\WOW6432Node\TypeLib\{03B81820-510E-42C6-93B8-CFA253794662}\1.0\HELPDIR?

 

If your machine is a 32-bit machine, can you post the value of the following key - Computer\HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\TypeLib\{03B81820-510E-42C6-93B8-CFA253794662}\1.0\HELPDIR
