 Missing help file and equations
18-03-2014 03:31 . am   |   View his/her posts only
I am having problems and I hope somebody can help. Firstly my help file seems to have disappeared (ZW3D.CHM) Whenever I try to open the help browser I get an error " File ZW3D.CHM not found" I searched my PC for this file and seems to have disappeared. My help browser was working fine some weeks ago when I used it last but now...nada. Where could this file have gone to and why ? I have even re-installed my software again to be sure.
The next problem I have is that my equations are now less than it was. ie. some are missing. I have to do a model of a spiral shell and I wanted to use the pre-defined equations for the Archimedes Spiral but now when I go to the equations selection in sketch mode it is gone as are many other equations.

I run 2013 SP 64 Bit.

Can anybody help please ?

Thanks
Martin.

Hi Martin, I post a link here for the help file, you can download it to put it to the directory as below. I think it should work, otherwise, you can directly use the help file without via ZW3D.

Regarding the equation problem, I think it will better you can upload your file to let me take a look, or you can add some picture so that I can understand it.

Hi William,

Thanks for the quick reply. Unfortunately it seems like your dropbox link is not working.

Hi William,

Thanks a lot that worked. As it happened I found that the doc folder was not even there. Not sure why or how that happened.

As for the equation issue I found that the spirals (Like Archimedes Spiral) was only available in 3d mode and not in sketch mode. So I worked around that.

Thanks
Martin.

Hi Martin, I guess that you miss some files when installing, you can try reinstall. Or create this folder manually.

Regards.
