How to use latest source

Dec 15, 2014 at 8:20 PM

I was looking at using AlphaFS to get around the LongFilePath issue with powershell, and saw that your homepage recommended using the latest dev build. I am just wondering if there are any specific instructions for compiling the code?

I have VS 2012.

Also i tried downloading the latest stable build to view the help, but couldn't figure who to view the contents of the chm file. I unblocked all the files and also tried running Install_AlphaFS_Help_VS2010.bat but this is the output i get

ERROR: The requested operation could not be performed.
Details: The Help Library Manager executable could not be found. Is it installed?

I think i figured out how to install the help.

So i'm using windows 7 and after doing some reading on the following sites:

I realized that i had version 2 of the Help Library Manager Launcher already in windows in the following directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Help Viewer\v2.0\HlpCtntMgr.exe

So i ran the following command in an Admin command console.
HlpCtntMgr.exe /operation install /catalogName VisualStudio11 /locale en-us /wait 0 /sourceUri "C:\Path_to_my_file\HelpContentSetup.msha" and that worked.

Hope this helps someone else, cause it took me a bit to figure it out.
