Default .chm file not opening when transferred to another computer


Hi, I created a .chm help file that I included in my program. I can open the chm file with a button or F1. I copied the exe file to my desktop and open it and everything worked fine, but when I put the exe file on another computer the chm wont open, neither button click nor F1 key. I made the program with VB 2008 on WinXP. I tested the exe file on another XP and Win7 machine, which didn't work.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Here is the code and directions I used to open the .chm help file:

Private Sub HelpToolStripMenuItem1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles HelpToolStripMenuItem1.Click

Help.ShowHelp(Me, HelpProvider1.HelpNamespace)
End Sub

1.) Simply add your existing CHM file to your Project and set it to Copy Always or Copy If Newer.

2.) On your form, drag and drop in a HelpProvider from the Components Toolbox.

3.) In your Form Properties, adjust the setting "HelpButton" to TRUE and adjust the setting "HelpNavigator on HelpProvider1" to TableOfContents.

4.) Adjust the "HelpNameSpace" of the HelpProivder1 component to the name of your CHM file. ie. MyHelpFile.chm

Done.

I'm not sure what the issue with XP would be, but .chm files have been deprecated and if you want to view them on Win7 you might have to Unblock them under the .chm file properties on that PC.
