  1. hello, i am unable to open .chm files only on my system drive (which windows is currently running on, in this case it is C:\ ).
    But .chm files would open normally on my flash drive or my other physical drive( g:\ and f:\ ).

    The error message is:
    "Cannot Open the File: Mk:mad:MSITStore [FileName]"

    I've searched around about registering files and such but nothing works. And i don't think it is the viewer that is causing the problem because it works perfectly on drives other than the system drive.

    I am using Windows XP sp2


    This is so weird. :giddy:
    Thanks in advance.

    What are you using to open the .chm files?
    Also are you converting these files from html?
