For some reason I can't get the help menu to load. I have re-loaded AutoCAD P&ID 3 times and everytime I hit either help or F1 it says "Cannot find help file: acad.chm" Does anybody know how to fix this problem?
Thanks,
Tom

Go to "Options", "File" tab. Expand "Help and Miscellaneous File Name", expand "Help File". Make sure the location is correct if not browse to where the file is. This should take care of.

What file am I actually looking for to be in that directory because I cannot locate an "acad.chm" anywhere. The file that does show up in that directory is adskpid020.chm and that file doesn't exist either. neither of them exist on my hardrive or the AutoCad disk.
Thanks,
Tom

In your help directory there should be a filed called "acad170.chm" for Acad 07. If your using '08 the number will be 171...172 if your running '09.
