    Known Problems with the Help Update Installer

  • If you close the Update before it does a complete install, when you run Check Update again, a message says there is no Update available. The workaround is to download and run HelpSetup from the Registered Users Site at http://www.codegear.com/downloads/regusers.
  • If you have registered 3rd party help in the RAD Studio/5.0/Help/Doc/h2reg.ini file, you may have problems if you used syntax that is not compatible with RAD Studio Help. See How to Plug 3rd-Party Help into RAD Studio Help for instructions.
