Well, to give credit where credit's due, the new help wiki seems to be working and it seems to be much faster.  Only thing is, even though I'm using 2013, the help I get is for 2014.  Maybe it's a clean break.  Maybe they did 2014 first and will add 2013.

Mine took a bit to load,but once it was up seemed much quicker. I have your same issue though, i'm on 2013 and it only gave 2014.


As long as it's faster - i'll deal :smileyhappy:


Of course, on the AutoCAD side I can't get anything to load but a blank screen (IT asked me about AutoCAD as people have been having issues today).

Hello Jeanie


I downloaded and installed the 2013 help files to the default 'c:\ programs..." location...

I change the helpids.xml file to "UseOnline=0"...


However, when I try to access local help from within Inventor 2013 SP2 Update 3 I get the message below:
