Books Online hyperlinks not active RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.  New user.  Intalled 2008 R2 Express with AS successfully, but the BOOKS ONLINE feature I downloaded after the express install doesn't seem to be working.  I can view the entire feature, but none of the hyperlinks to drill down to details are activated.   Can someone help with this?      Thanks in advance for your assistance.

  • Hi,

    According to your description, I downloaded the SQL Server 2008R2 Books Online from Microsoft Download Center and installed it on my computer, everything worked well. All the hyperlinks in the BOOK ONLINE  are active, and I can read contents via clicking the hyperlinks.

    Could you please check that if your system meets the prerequisites of installing SQL Server 2008 R2 Books Online following this link: ?

    Please note that you cannot have side-by-side installations of Books Online on the same machine. If you have installed other versions of Books Online on your computer, please try to uninstall them , then reinstall SQL Server 2008 R2 Books Online.
