Help Search not working

I installed AutoCAD Mechanical 2008 SP1 and when I click on Help, the help file opens and the Contents and Index tabs work fine, but not the Search tab. If I choose "All Documentation" and type some text, then click the Search button, I don't see any results from Developer Documentation, only User's Guide and Command Reference.

Also, when I double-click on a title, about half the time the result page shows "The page cannot be displayed". If I select "Additional Resources | Developer Help" from the Help menu, the same thing happens. I've tried repairing the install, but that doesn't help.

Any ideas? TIA.

I recently noticed the same problem and I wonder if it has to do with either having 2009 installed and uninstalled or Inventor LT installed and then uninstalled.

Have you had either of those on and off your system?

No, but I do have Inventor 2008 installed. And I don't think I've ever uninstalled it.
