Email to say new Update for Nero Premium 7. I went to web, downloaded (120MB+) and installed no problem except lost connection to online Help files.

Had to download the Help Files from separately also chose PDFs as well .

I put the CHM in folder I created in ProgramFiles/Nero They still did not work, had to open each one and in File Explorer which caused MS Open File Warning and unless you turn off "Always ask before opening file" check box it will not work .

Once this is done works fine from File Explorer Still could not access CHM Help files from within applications. To fix this I needed to copy CHM file into each Nero Application Folder Step through folders to find CHM stub files with same name as downloaded ones and then copy over.

I could not find SMARTSTART or homes for NeroScout_Eng.chm and NeroSipps_Eng.chm (internet phone)

One of three blogs I am creating to record actions and thoughts so that I can recall them later and may even be useful to other people.

You know how it is! You spend several hours or even days solving a problem for your PC and software, and for some reason need to do it again (new PC, recovery or whatever) and all you can remember is that you know you did it before but be damned if you can remember how!

Other Blogs are Photography, my major hobby, and Education, I have a thirst for knowledge and facts.

I hope to use these as feeds to my website where significant events will be summarised.
