Hi,

there was some report that the help system on Windows (10?) does
not work. I do not have a Windows system here. Could anybody with
pspp on Windows 10 test if „Help -> Handbook“ does work?

The original posting with more detailed questions is here:

Dear Friedrich Beckmann,

no, it doesn't work (see the screenshot attached). I use version GNU
pspp 1.0.1-gecad37 on a Windows 10 computer.  This feature didn't work
in former versions of pspp, either.

Kind regards,

Oliver Walter

Dear Oliver,

thanks for checking this. Could you rename the file

gspawn-win32-helper-console.exe

to

gspawn-win32-helper.exe ?

This file is in the installation directory of pspp. For me this is:

C:\Programme\PSPP\bin\gspawn-win32-helper.exe

Does the online help then work for you?

Regards

Friedrich

This change solves the problem for my Windows 7 installation of PSPP.

Dear Friedrich Beckmann,

thank you. Now the online help seems to work in the html format.

Kind regards,

Thanks to Friedrich Beckmann I was able to build a new mswindows package in
which the help system should work.

If you have time, have a look at the
https://sourceforge.net/projects/pspp4windows/files/2017-09-09-TestBuild/
version and give it a try.

For the most reliable test results, remove your current pspp installation
before installing this version.

Have fun
