Can't use MSDN outside or inside VS2005(by press F1) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear All,
    I recently installed VS2005 with Document Explorer and MSDN.

    But when I start MSDN out of VS2005, I got error message like "Can't open Document Explorer,  path ms-help://MS.MSDNQTR.v80.chs is invalid."

    If I press F1 in VS2005, the help updating dialog appears and after a few minutes there will be an error message from Windows XP indicate that the Document Explorer has error occured and will be closed. But the updating window will still be there, I had to open the task manager and termilate the VS2005(not the document explorer, if I do this, it will open again automaticly) to close it. The same as if I open the Document Explorer outside the VS2005.

    If I uninstall the MSDN, this error will not happen, and the Document Explorer works correctly!

    Hope someone can help me with this issue.
    Thanks a lot!
