Help file problem with version 16

Jan 18, 2014
When I click F1 I get an outline of the help file with

"Navigation to the webpage was canceled"

What you can try:

Retype the address.

Any ideas?

Are you running Take Command on a network share?

The usual fix for this (Windows, not TCMD) problem is to right click on tcmd.chm in Explorer, select properties, and unblock the file. (The exact procedure varies depending on what version of Windows you're running.)
