i pointed this out previously several months back when we were having the big 
help installation discussion... i couldn't get it to work and then suddenly it 
started... about that time someone wrote in here to fill in that field with the 
path... i checked mine and is was empty so i responded that i didn't have 
anything in mine and it was now working... i had thought that you might have 
picked up on that post of mine because your help install started working per 
your report...

now, the only thing left for me/us is to find the rest of the chm files... 
there's more than three of them ;)
