Broken Help File - stm32f10x_an3268_fw.chm

I downloaded the firmware package from here:

http://www.st.com/mcu/modules.php?name=mcu&file=devicedocsmdt&FAM=110&DEV=STM32VLDISCOVERY

When I open the file stm32f10x_an3268_fw.chm, the navigation panel appears to work fine (Contents, Index, Search, Favorites). However, the actual pages do not appear -- instead, I get ''Navigation to the wepage was canceled -- Retype the address''.

This happens from two different machines -- workstation and laptop.

Anybody else have this issue?

I get the same thing when trying to open the chm file from a network share.  If you are too, try copying the file to your 'C' drive. (Works for me)  I can get it to work from a USB stick too.  I'm running XP Pro SP3.

I think this is a known issue with .chm files - see:
