Robohelp HTML v11 generating a Microsoft HTML help (.chm file)

Marketing would like to see our branding on the icon that displays for a .chm file (not the usual page with a yellow question mark).

Is there a setting to change the image that's associated with the .chm file? (I don't mean the image for the help in our software.) They want to distribute the .chm files separately, but want our branding on it.

Hi there

To my knowledge, that icon is coming from the Microsoft HTML Help viewer application. There isn't any way I've ever known to change it. Heck, even inside the Microsoft HTML Help file when you are presenting the CHM, you have two custom buttons you can enable. And you can't even customize those.

Sorry, but those are the breaks.

Cheers... Rick
