Help file in v7

Postby javiersan » Wed Dec 30, 2009 10:00 am


When I press F1 the help file no longer shows in my internet browser but in a Windows help file reader format. I much prefer to browse the help files using internet explorer and this is the way it showed when I used v6, how could I revert back to the internet browser?

Unfortunately the browser based help system that we switched to in EViews 6 was not popular (both amongst users and ourselves), and, essentially, was unusable on certain systems and setups. Thus we had to switch to something else. We feel the help system in EV7 is far superior to that in EV6, but there is a large amount of personal taste based in that feeling, so you may feel differently. Unfortunately there is no way to switch the EViews 7 based help to the EViews 6 style.
