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
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).
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:
Internet access is required to access the Help
The Help for this Autodesk product is now online and is being continuously updated. To access the online help you must be connected to the internet.
To access the Help for this Autodesk product when you are Offline, access the internet and download from here: http://autodesk.com/inventor-2013-help-download
What else can I try so as to get access to the local help...
Any suggestions is greatly appreaciated...
