When attempting to enter the Help either by Syntax check or by enter the help I get a Syntax error at line 1 and subsequently at each click on a link in the Help file

Expected result:
This is a problem I am experiencing with the help file downloaded from your site

What help do you mean, what exactly did you get and where (URL, please)?

I installed the documentation (.chm file downloaded from your site)and setup as per the instruction on your site and the syntax error mentioned keeps appearing each time I go into the help and on all subsequent clicks on links in the help files.

I have tried both setting up in Editplus and PHPIDE and both produce the same error.

I can reproduce this every time and can supply screen prints if that moght help (need an email to send to if that is required).

But are you using the normal or the extended chm version?

And did you read our warning about windows XP that is in the downloads page?
"If you are using Microsoft Internet Explorer under Windows XP SP2 or later and you are going to download the documentation in CHM format, you should "unblock" the file after downloading it, by right-clicking on it and selecting the properties menu item. Then click on the 'Unblock' button. Failing to do this may lead to errors in the visualization of the file, due to a Microsoft bug."

Syntax errors can also appear if you launch .chm from a network drive.
