help feature defaults to Autodesk Exchange online

I have AutoCadLT 2012 and is trying to use the help feature, but it keeps defaulting to the , Autodesk Exchange online. This is a company computer and its not setup to allow the feature. 

 

Is there an offline help feature?

Located:  Big Red A, upper left (dropdown) > Options (button) > System (tab)

 

Uncheck box: Access online content....

 

Select : Default System Browser

 

This sequence worded for me.

Under OPTIONS in the attached screenshot. Is this where your porgram is pointing to for Help Location?

thanks for pointing me there.

 

But it's not clear as to how to make the change. The options on the right that, ADD, REMOVE or SET CURRENT, are there, but is not in function mode.

Click on the File name and then click Browse on the right hand column.

From there you will be able to find the file if it is indeed not pointing to the right place currently.

If access to Online Help is actually blocked (even with the correct path), you can use an offline version by unchecking the "Access online content" box from the System tab of the Options dialog.

This is currently checked in my Options, System tab but Help does not default to Online as this would indicate it should.

This is beginning to be a bit more then I hoped for. I'm assuming that the word file your referring to is , index.html?

 

Is it possible that the 2012 version is set up to only go online if you click on their help box? The response of my pc to your instruction don't appear to be going in the right direction to default to offline help.

I think this worked.

 

I may have created other problem for myself, with changes I made.  

 

I set it to open in pdf format. i get a error message in pdf window.

 

" There is an error opening this document. The filename directory, directory name or volumn label syntax is incorrect"

 

ggggrrrr

Okay, under the Help Location shown in the Options dialog does your's say:

C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Autodesk LT 2012 - English\Help\Index.html
