Mac: reference to help files not working

Hi!

 

A while ago I've added an app to the app store which now gives trouble on a broken help-file reference. In de menu class I'd added the following lines:

cmd = adsk.core.Command.cast(args.command)
cmd.helpFile = './Resources/help.html'

At that time I've tested the whole thing and everything seemed to work fine. Now Mac users apparently can no longer open the help files.  On Windows everything works fine. Unfortunately I no longer have access to the Mac system I initially used for testing.

 

I know this is a very basic line, but is there someone who might have an idea where this is working differently for Windows then for Mac? I've already confirmed capital use is not the issue. I did notice in some of the API samples that the following format is being used:

cmd.helpFile = 'Resources/help.html'

 

Does anyone have an idea?

 

Thanks!

This was reported a few years ago and I recently asked about it again.  The good news is I've been told the problem was found and fixed for the January update.  No change is needed to your code, it should just start working on Mac.
