Cannot get HELP window to work in Retrospect 8 for WIN


Recommended Posts

Problems with the HELP area in Retrospect 8 for Windows (in Windows 7)


I go to the HELP tab - it opens a window - I try to search for a topic and I get this message in the window to the right:




What you can try:

Retype the address.




There is NO address entered.


Only clicking on the topic in the left column that I need help with.


For some unknown reason - it is not accessing Windows Explorer and opening a HELP window in Explorer.


I have Windows Explorer 9.


Solutions anyone?


Thank you.
