Content of a CHM file is not shown on a shared drive

Applies to
ApexSQL Doc, ApexSQL Doc for MySQL

This article explains what to do when the contents of a CHM file, generated by ApexSQL Doc, is not shown on a shared drive

Security patches released for Windows operating systems can by default limit the ability of viewing active content (which includes all CHM content) on a network or shared drives

This setting can be overridden on an individual client machine in order to view the CHM file content. To do this, paste the following code into a *.reg file and then double-click the file to add it to the Windows Registry


Note that allowing a machine to view active content on remote machines, increased the security risk
