A local content file required by the system is missing…

Hello experts

Recently I had a few problems in my Microsoft Help Viewer, the application that as mixes with Visual Studio and gives contextual help on keywords when you select F1.

The initial trouble was that in spite of being right configured to make use of offline files which are downloaded previously, the application declined to work with these types of contents, saying that,

A local content file required by the system is missing.

Help Library Manager – Microsoft Help Viewer 1.0

A local content file required by the system is missing or corrupted. Reinstall Microsoft Help Viewer to repair this problem or set help to online.

OK

I am trying to solve this by correcting the XML in HelpLibManager.exe.config, tricking it to suppose it was its primary run, as a result it would permit me to reconfigure the help system, though losing each and every downloads.

<add key="FirstTimeRun" value="True" />

I finished up with a dissimilar error message, saying that "An exception has occurred¾

Help Library Manager – Microsoft Help Viewer 1.0

An exception has occurred. See the event log for details.

OK

Need to solve this. Please help.

Thanks.

Hello Carol,

Here is a solution to help you solve that problem:

1) You will first of all need to locate the following file on your computer: HelpLibManager.exe.config. It can be found in the following directory: C:Program FilesMicrosoft help Viewerv1.0HelpLibManager.exe.config but the path may vary depending on the operating system that you are using.

2) Locate the appSettings and change the value of the FirstTimeRun to true.

3) After that you will need to save the changes and then exit the config file.

4) If you want to view help some other time, you will need to specify when to install the content and where to install it.

You can either install it online or on a disk.

Regards,

Carl
