manual.chm cannot be started.
W2k/SP4, IE 6.0.2800.1106IC

Errorbox: "The window name "Main" passed to HH_GET_WIN_TYPE has not been specified."
Then an empty help window appears.

How to repeat:
start manual.chm

Suggested fix:
You need to define the Main window in your hcw conf file (manual.hpj I assume)

main= blabla

BTW: This simple manual.hhp conf file works also fine. 
(no window tricks needed)

Thank you for your interest in the MySQL graphical administration tools.
We recommend that you use our MySQL Administrator and MySQL Query
Browser.  The MySQLGUI and MySQL Command Center legacy products are
deprecated, and we are no longer maintaining those projects.

For more information on MySQL Administrator, see:

I'm re-opening this. The category is mysqlcc, but
it's a docs issue, and I can verify that the manual.chm
file is malformed.  We're working on this.
[28 Jan 2005 17:42] Paul DuBois
Changing category.

The CHM manual should be okay now. The issue was due to
an undetected problem during the build process, resulting in
a malformed output file.

It may take a while for all the mirrors to get the current
copy, but it should be present on all of them soon.

Thank you for reporting the problem.
