Problem with VB.Net and Help Workshop 1.4

P: n/a
I can launch the help viewer with no problem, but I want it to start on a
particular page and not the default page. According the the 1.4 docs you can
download, this should do the trick

help.showhelp(Me, "C:\directoryname\helpfilename.chm::/targetpage.htm")

starting the help viewer on targetpage.htm in the chm. But this gives me a

NotSupportedException: the given path's format is not supported.

which sounds like VB.net doesn't like the extended path syntax. The command

help.showhelp(Me, "C:\directoryname\helpfilename.chm")

works just fine, but launches the default page (as it is supposed to).

Does anyone know how to make VB accept the extended path syntax Help
Workshop wants?

Thanks
