Use this page to provide a customized Connection Manager Help file for users who connect to your network.

The Help file you can include depends on the operating system selection you make on the Select the Target Operating System page of the CMAK wizard:

  • If you selected Windows 7 or Windows Vista, then you can include a .chm file in your connection profile. For more information about how to create a custom .chm file, see Providing Custom Connection Manager Help (.chm) (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=80959) on the Microsoft Web site.

  • If you selected Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000, then you can include an .hlp file in your connection profile. For more information about how to create a custom .hlp file, see Providing Custom Windows Help (.hlp) (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=80970) on the Microsoft Web site.
