  • Hello Obnoxious,

     

    some applications/controls/technologies cannot read files embedded inside a CHM file.

     

    Rob Chandler (www.helpware.net) found, if one left the Camtasia HTML, XML, SWF outside the CHM and dynamically created a path to this external HTML (see download example above) then you could in fact make the Camtasia Flash run inside the HH window (or use Target="_blank" and make it open in a separate IE window).
