Customising Delphi 2005 Help
I think it was just coincidental but a few days after I reintegrated the IntraWeb help into the Delphi 2005 IDE, the Delphi help on my PC imploded and wouldn't load the indexes for any help files.
It may have been caused by me running the Delphi setup again but I don't really know. Anyway if it happens to you here's the fix and also a way to customise the help system to remove help files you don't need.
Open a command prompt and change the directory to
Unregister the help files with this command
To reregister all help files again use this command
If you wanted to be more selective with the help files that are registered you could try this instead which registers only the common help files and the Win32 help files.
To register the common help files and the .NET help files only use this command
What do those numbers mean?
The numbers are made by adding up the values from the table below. To install you use a positive value and to uninstall you use a negative one.
For example to install just the common and Win32 help files the parameter would be 5 made up from 1 + 4 (Common + Win32). To uninstall them the value would be -5.
To see all the options available enter
regHelp with no parameters
at the command prompt.
