You'll have to UnBlock the *.chm file, first ...

It is a very large document and I have used Google Translate and Bing Microsoft Translator for the translation

Hi Ray,

I can see the listings on the left (Content, info about the developers, 2D_Draw etc) but no luck on the right side, it remains white. This is on Win7-64, and normally all my *.chm files look ok.

Btw have you checked DeepL?


@jj2007
As Mr Swiss advises, you need to right click the file > Properties > tick Unblock > click Apply > click OK. When you open the file you'll see all of the text.

DeepL: no I've never heard of it, but I've now bookmarked it and will give it a try. Thank you.

In over 20 years as a Windows user, I've never seen this - weird, a file that is partially blocked. Windows also warned me that the file could damage my puter bla bla, and that warning disappeared after it was unblocked. See also https://superuser.com/questions/503812/ ... is-missing about alternate data streams.

It's often a tick better than Google, but Russian was added only recently - no idea how well it translates RU-EN.

It happens every time that you download a .chm file from the web. Best way to avoid it is to upload the .chm file zipped.

Thanks, that explains why I never saw it: Most of the time I hang around in SMF-based forums, and the only allowed attachments are zip archives.

Unlocking can also be done using own software, by truncating the alternate stream. I work with CHMs a lot (FPC documentation), and regularly use it.

Another workaround is to find some tool like wget and use that to download files. Most major browsers follow the rule that "executable" files from outside the system must be marked blocked, specially if the support for them is built-in. But smaller tools and own downloaders that directly do HTTP (and don't use wininet apis) usually don't.

Thank you all for your kind comments. I've always used the unblock method, but I think the best way will be to use a zip file. I have taken the opportunity to also include all of the code in the help file. The link is here https://www.dropbox.com/s/w6aaaxj2xila0ba/Window9EngHelp.zip?dl=0.

I hope this makes it easier for interested users to download the helpfile. I think the code will be useful too.

Just tested that with a downloader that uses WinInet, and it works fine, i.e. no unblocking needed.

Hi all!

@RNBW
Thank you very much! I know that translation is very time-consuming operation, I'm glad you have the patience. Please make changes to english help file, to the page: "Information about the developers" . You must be referred there as a translator in the help file. I also forgot to Steini63 user mention in the help file. I remade changes in Russian help file. You can see the modified page in the Help file: https://sourceforge.net/projects/guiwin ... p/download

I'll wait for you and then refreshes the information on sf.net

@VANYA
I've updated the help file as you requested and edited my post accordingly. I have also added 3 sections of code in the HelpFileCode>3D(openGL) folder which I had missed. I think you will probably find that you need to unblock the help file even though it is in a zipfile.

Thank you very much for a mention in the contributors list.

Thank you!

-------------

I have updated the library. What was done:

1) Fixed a few bugs
2) Added English help file , courtesy of the translated user-RNBW.
3) Spent recompiling the library under the current version of the compiler (1.07.1)
