    Default How do you install Help for your application?

    I thought I followed it correctly but I can't seem to get the help
    working corretly. Here's what I did.

    1. I created a folder with all the .html in it. The folder is in
    blue color.
    2. I made a <META NAME = "AppleTitle" CONTENT="MyApp Help">
    3. I add the 3 strings in the setting.
    a. CFBundleHelpBookFolder = Help_Html
    b. CFBundleHelpBookName = MyApp Help
    c. CFBundleIndentifier = www.mycompany.myapp

    Isn't this correct? Somehow this works on the machine I program on,
    but when I copy the program to a new machine. I can't get the help to
    work. My application's help is not in the Help Viewer Center either.

    Something I found that is weird is this, while I was debugging. I did
    the follwing to see what happen.

    1. If I change the content of the html and recompile, the content
    change. (Which is correct).
    2. Even though the help only work on the developing machine. I
    change the CONTENT="MyApp Help" to CONTENT= "ACBDEF" while leaving the
    CFBundleHelpBookName = MyApp Help as it is. Recompile, the program
    still launch the help with the html in it. Why is that? Shouldn't
    it try to look for a html that has a CONTENT="MyApp Help" and complain
    since there's none in it?

    If anybody know what I did wrong?

    Thanks,

    Last I looked, Carbon apps had to make a function call (AHRegisterHelpBook, I
    think) to register with Help Center.

    I read about that, but the program I wrote is in Cocoa. So, I think
    think those are required. At least that's what I thought.

    In that case, I believe that there's a plist entry you want to add, but I am not
    sure about it as I haven't used that before.
