SQlite.NET.chm

rjrizzuto

When I download SQlite.NET.chm from the internet, and open it, I can see the table of content but not the actual content.  It appears to be due to a block caused by downloading from the internet.

Googling came up with this:  https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/1961503-solved-windows-10-chm-help-files-showing-up-blank

However, my company has apparently set our pc's so we can neither see nor change the block status of a file from the internet.  As a work-around, I used cygwin's cp command to copy the file, and the copy is not blocked.

Since .chm is a compiled html file, I would imagine the concern is that there can be embedded (and malicious) scripts in the html.  Would it be possible to provide documentation in a safer format, such as a .pdf?

Is the chm file on a server? I remember this problem from years ago...I
haven't used a chm file in a long time. Unblocking did not fix it while it
resided on the server. However, copying it locally and unblocking it did
work.

Hope this helps,
dvn

It's a long time ago, but I seem to remember being told that if I wanted to distribute a .chm file I should Zip it first.

Simon.

From memory a file is marked as blocked by a hidden file stream attached to
the file. That’s why using cp removed the block as I guess it doesn’t
understand file streams.

Cheers
