Can't get HepProvider to expand topics

I'm using HelpProvider in my VB.Net app, but something is keeping it from
working. The .chm file opens OK, but no topics will expand. When I browse to
a new topic in the chm file I get a very brief window displayed (too fast to
read) then it goes back to the help window, and the contents side of the
window stays blank.
Everything I'm doing in my application with regard to help is completely
vanilla, and when I build a test app with the same .chm file it works fine.
The problem seems to be in the interaction between my app and the help system.
My HelpProvider code is:
Friend WithEvents HelpProvider1 As System.Windows.Forms.HelpProvider
....
Me.HelpProvider1 = New System.Windows.Forms.HelpProvider
....
Me.HelpProvider1.SetHelpKeyword(Me.lblAdminister, "IRS Help
System.chm::/HTML Files/Administering IRS.htm")
Me.HelpProvider1.SetHelpNavigator(Me.lblAdminister ,
System.Windows.Forms.HelpNavigator.Topic)
....
Me.HelpProvider1.SetShowHelp(Me.lblAdminister, True)
....
Me.HelpProvider1.HelpNamespace = "C:\Program Files\PEP
Systems\IRS\IRS Help System.chm"
