How to display a *.chm file.

P: n/a
May be a dumb question but I have been unable to find the answer on my own.
I wish to display a help file (*.chm) can anyone help?
I attempted using "displaying help file" as a search in MSDN but no found
articles seemed to have what I wanted.

I should add that a HelpProvider doesn't seem to do what I need. I've got a
toolbar with
a help button and I just want to display the chm file when the button is
clicked.

You can find the Process class in the System.Diagnostics namespace to
achieve it.

For example,

// Start Internet Explorer. Defaults to the home page.
Process.Start("IExplore.exe");

// Start CHM help file.
Process.Start("help.chm");

Find more information about Process class on the MSDN online site.

Thanks very much for the reply Simida. In my search I came across a class
named Help.
In my original search when I clicked on the link to the Help class it did
not succeed so I
was unable to see what it provided. I tried again later and the link
succeeded and I found
that this class provides what I need.

Thanks again for your assistance.
