Steps to Recreate:
1) Open the Buddi application
2) On the main menu click on Help->Buddi Tutorial or Help -> Buddi Help

Expected results: Help or Tutorial should open in the browser (Seamonkey 2.6)

Actual:
If browser is not running nothing happens.
If browser is already running nothing happens

ie in both above instances clicking these Help menu options results in nothing happening

    The library I use to open the web browser does not support OS/2, unfortunately. See http://browserlaunch2.sourceforge.net/platformsupport.shtml for supported platforms.

    The tutorial window is not a big problem, as it just opens to http://buddi.digitalcave.ca/tutorials/index.jsp . A bigger problem is the reports, which also use a web browser. I don't know what the best option is for that, other than just opening the report .html files manually.

    Sad that you are using software that is simply not capable.

    Never mind, buddie is simply no use to me as it is so no longer exists on my system.

    Please feel free to close this bug report - unless you plan on updating buddie so that it can open a browser on OS/2 based systems.
