  • How to Install Zoom Help File?

    When I click the "Help" button on any of the pages of the Zoom Search Engine Indexer 64 bit - Professional Edition user interface, I get "Zoom - could not open help. The specified file was not found." How can I fix this?

    P.S. Somehow, this function has "healed". Clicking the "Help" button does not open the help to an appropriate topic, as I would expect, but it at least opens the help "Introdution" page. Go figure !?

      I am having this problem again with Version 8.0 (Build: 1016). When I invoke "Help" (whether by pressing F1, picking the first item in the "Help" menu or by clicking the"Help" button on the "Skip options" page) I get a popup dialog with the title "Zoom - could not open help." and the text "The specified file was not found." How can I fix this?

      P.S. Uninstalling build 1016 and installing build 1014 has fixed the problem, even though the logfiles still identify the running version as build 1016.

        Help file in V8.0 build 1016 seems fine.
        You can run the ZoomHelp.exe program to open the help file.

        Typically this file is here
        C:\Program Files\Zoom Search Engine 8.0\ZoomHelp.exe
