Hi All,

After installing VS2008 Express I have the following issue with D2005
Pro /SP3 help:
At IDE startup I get an error:
---------------------------
Borland Delphi 2005
---------------------------
Access violation at address 05FE77BE in module 'htmlhelp290.bpl'. Read
of address 00000018.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

When I click help I get a dialog:
---------------------------
Error
---------------------------
No topic-based help system installed.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

Pressing F1 doesn't do anything

Any ideas?

Article
http://support.codegear.com/article/35786
also deals with the matter and gives same
solution, although the issue is described
to be created by D2005 being installed
*after* .net is installed.

After the change, D2005 help works as before
and also VS2008 help appears to work OK.
