I installed a version of Measurement Studio for Visual Studio 2010, but when I attempt to view the Measurement Studio Help, my browser launches and I receive a message stating that the page is not found or that the topic requested could not be found in local help.
Why does this happen and how can I resolve the issue?
The Visual Studio 2010 help system is architected in a way that prevents smooth integration of third-party help if the help system is not set up correctly prior to Measurement Studio installation. To set up and correctly install the Measurement Studio help, complete the following steps:
from the shortcut in the Windows Start menu to see the Measurement Studio Help in the Help Viewer.
Note: If you have any NI driver software that includes a .NET 4.0 Driver API, it will show up in the Help Configuration Utility as well. You can install the help components for the driver using the same method as above. See National Instruments .NET Driver Support for information about which NI drivers have APIs that support .NET 4.0.
If you do not have access to the Help Configuration Utility to complete the last step above, you can manually add Measurement Studio or NI driver help components by following the steps outlined in KnowledgeBase 5KSFAHQW:Accessing the .NET 4.0 API Help Documentation for NI Driver Software.
