Getting JB 'Help' to work in e.g. Windows 10
Post by stumpy on Jul 7th, 2017, 07:21am

Found this thread, which seems to provide a solution...

Here is the advice which I could best follow, as text, and the resulting files which work to get JustBasic help on Windows 10, as copied from the MS Community forum:-

You won't need to deal with this for much longer because Just BASIC v2.0 will be released soon, and this will install correctly on Windows 10 and other recent versions of Windows such as Windows 7 and Windows 8.

The help will be in HTML format, so it will always be readable.

If it'll be in CHM format' it will be search-able.
