Help Page, All Drivers Per-User Preferences

This options on this page control some of the default settings used when creating help projects for IVI-COM, IVI.NET, and IVI-C drivers.

Help formats
Help 1.x (chm)

This setting controls whether or not a self-contained .chm file will be generated. When enabled, the associated driver installer (if any) will deploy this file to the end-user machine.

Help Viewer

This setting controls whether or not driver help content will be generated for the Microsoft Help Viewer , which is used by Visual Studio. When enabled, the associated driver installer (if any) will integrate the driver help content into the Microsoft Help Viewer on the end-user's machine.

Register content with Help Viewer on build

This setting controls whether or not the driver help content will be automatically registered with the Microsoft Help Viewer on your machine whenever the driver help project is built. This setting has no effect on the end-user's machine.

To preview the generated help content from within Visual Studio, right click on the help project node in the Solution Explorer and selecting View in Help Viewer.

Sign content with a code-signing certificate

Enables signing sign of the help content to be integrated with the Microsoft Help Viewer. Signed help content can be silently installed without the Microsoft Help Viewer without displaying a security warning to the end-user. Refer here for more information on signing Microsoft Help Viewer content.

Certificate thumbprint

The certificate thumbprint of the code-signing certificate to use for signing the help content.
