Re: How do I install help files on logger32?

I think the reason it won’t work under the ‘setup help file’ menu is that it insists on adding the HTTP:// to the local address. file:///c:/{path}/:filename.pdf}  ought to work, but when you put that in it turns into HTTP://file:///c:/{path}/:filename.pdf}

I could not get the Help URL to redirect to a local file on my system.


So, I have set up one of the "utility program" options in Logger32 like so:


To open local Help PDF using Edge browser:

cmd /c start msedge "D:\Documents\Logger32\Logger32_v4_User_Manual.pdf"


Using Adobe etc:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroRd32.exe "D:\Documents\Logger32\Logger32_v4_User_Manual.pdf"

Of course some of the program and file paths on your system may be different.

Hope this helps.

No way of pointing to a copy of the pdf held on the local hard drive?

Look under main menu VIEW and you will see about ¾ down a menu item “Setup Help menu options.”  That will bring you to this:

The first URL entry should be this:



The second URL, should you want to use this, should be like this:
