Viewing .chm file with a UNC path

If you have security patch 896358 installed or you have Windows 2003 SP1 it is possible that you cannot view .chm files on a remote share.

To fix it you should make a .reg file with the following content:

REGEDIT4
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\HTMLHelp]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\HTMLHelp\1.x\ItssRestrictions]
“MaxAllowedZone”=dword:00000002

Run it and viola you should see your content again from a remote share.
