Have applied content of test_release20120912.zip on top of BricxCC installed and found that CHM help does not work anymore. It means that when I open description of a function I see "Navigation to the webpage was canceled" in the right part of the window.

    This is caused by Windows blocking exe and other files, including CHM files, which have been downloaded from the internet directly to an NTFS file system. You need to bring up the properties dialog for all the EXE and CHM files and click the "unblock" button. Alternatively, you can simply download the zip to a FAT32 drive instead of an NTFS drive and then when you extract it Windows will not block those files. Thumb drives, external hard drives, SD cards, etc usually have FAT32 instead of NTFS as their file system.
