Whenever I go to the help via HELP or F1, at first the icon for "JP Software Website" is missing.

Refreshing (F5) doesn't help, but navigating to another page gets the icon to show properly.

The icon is in the .CHM file; it is not specified in the call to htmlhelp. The only difference in the way htmlhelp is invoked is that there isn't any argument passed when you do it from the help menu.

It's still a Microsoft issue, not TCMD. If you update your IE version you'll find all kinds of things suddenly work better!

When the help opens with the icon working, HH was started with (the likes of):
Code:
"C:\Windows\hh.exe" G:\tc19\TCMD.CHM::/overview.htm
When the help opens with the icon not working, HH was started with (the likes of):
Code:
"C:\Windows\hh.exe" G:\tc19\TCMD.CHM::/G:\tc19\TCMD.CHM::/overview.htm
The same happens when those two command lines are executed in TCC (in a tab or not). The first shows the icon; the second doesn't.

I couldn't find examples of the syntax in the second command line above.
