I don't see any content in the main panel

One of two things might be happening:
  1. Windows will block CHM files (for "your protection"! ha!) that were not created on your computer. Find the file in Windows Explorer, right click on it and select Properties, then click Unblock. This issue is the most common problem.
  2. You may be trying to read the help file from a network drive - Windows does not allow this with CHM files. Move the file to the same folder as the installed Ahnenblatt EXE file.
I believe most of these types of problems can be avoided by using the installer/updater I have created (see here), but make sure that your installation folder (for the Help/Language files) is the same as the original Ahnenblatt installation folder.

The issue was that I needed to unblock the CHM file. Thanks!
