Yesterday I have downloaded help MySQL server 5.1 reference help file in .chm format from the url "http://downloads.mysql.com/docs/refman-5.1-en.chm", when I try to open it it says "cannot open the file: mk:@msitstore:%file path%". 
Today I tried to download again, same error, I have search in the internet for similiar problem, try all suggestions, but the result is the same. All another help files from your site in .chm format working propertly.

How to repeat:
Download the file from "http://downloads.mysql.com/docs/refman-5.1-en.chm", and try to open.

Thank you for the problem report. Indeed, it is not possible to open the file on XP, for example.

We can no longer promise to fix any issues regarding CHM-formatted docs.
