Documentation for v4.0 RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi all;

    I've just installed ASP.NET version 4.0 and I'm trying to find the local help for it.
    (IOW: Accessing help with Document Explorer).

    Looking in: Start > All Programs

    I do not see an entry for Microsoft .NET Framework SDK v4.0

    I've always accessed local help with the following shortcut:

    "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Help 8\dexplore.exe" /helpcol ms-help://MS.NETFramework.v20.en /LaunchNamedUrlTopic DefaultPage /usehelpsettings NETFrameworkSDK.20

    How do I get this to work for version 4.0?

     ... or ...

    Did something go wrong with the install?

  • Hello.

    I don't know exactly how you've performed ASP.NET installation, but I can say that the documentation system changed: you can verify it if you install the Windows SDK for Windows 7 and the .NET Framework 4 (maybe that's the way you did it?), that doesn't use Document Explorer as was in previous versions. The new documentation system uses the new Help Library Agent, that displays documentation pages in your web browser (actually Internet Explorer 9, for me).

    In fact, you won't find an entry named "Microsoft .NET Framework SDK v4.0" in the Start menu.
