Title: Installing and Using Carlson 2008 Help Files for AutoCAD
Created: 0000-00-00Last modified: 0000-00-00

We chose not to include the large Help file as part of the web download of the software. It would have nearly doubled the size of the download. Therefore, to properly install the Help files for any Carlson 2008 for AutoCAD product, following the below instructions:

1. Extract the attachment and copy the two files (.CHM and .XRF) into the C:\Program Files\Carlson2008\SupTemplate folder.

2. Once copied in, the .CHM help information for the software will be available. 

3. Ways to use Carlson 2008 Help. 

* Open the program. At the top-right of the screen, click the Help menu. Select Carlson Help. This will give you the cover page and TOC for all Help information. 

* While using a Carlson command, click F1 anytime, and you will see the Help information on that specific command. 

* In any Carlson dialog box that has a Help button, click that button for help on that command.

Due to Microsoft security fixes in Windows XP SP2, browsing of help files downloaded off the web is affected. For solution please see Knowledge Base Topic ID 321.

Note: After following these steps, if for any reason Help is not working inside of your software, please contact Carlson Technical Support.
