Hi all,
sorry for the newbie question.
Everytime i press F1 for the help i receive the message:
"Help Is Not Installed for Visual Studio"and the instruction about how
to install it.
but they not suggest how to do if i want to use the help installed on
another machine (something involving sharing the disk where the help is
installed and so on).
any suggestion about how to do it?
ty in advance

Hello xkp,

There was a section in the ReadMe on disk 1 of the MSDN that gives the command
for installing it on a network share

Thank you very much for yr help.
but still i am not found what i was looking for.
From the readme file i have found a way for installing MSDN from a

remote place, but always the setup will copy all the files on the local
machine, while i would like to use all the installed files on the
network machine, without copying them locally.
The other solution i have found is to share CDS over the network but in
this case i need to use CDs every time.
No other way? :(
