Point WF5 to network Help files

Used to be an option in PTCsetup to direct Pro to look on a network share
for the Help files.not there now. Can you still do this?



Thanks in advance,

How do I configure Pro/E WF5 (CEPro 5) to access help that is installed on a network share?

I installed the help files to a network share, as I have done in Wildfire 3 and prior.
In the past, I updatedconfig.pro setting

Can't do that anymore...
You have to install on a web server.
This is very poorly documented starting on page 6-6 or 82 in the install guide.

As Randy indicated, this is coverred (badly) on page 6-6 of the Creo install guide.


One of the options is to install help on a web server.
Well, I've got Windchill, which includes Apache & TomCat.
So I ran the installer web_deploy.bat.
However, this is not enough.
The last install step says " Configure your Web server to distribute Help Center from the <servlet_document_root>\proe_help directory."
Unfortunately, I do not know how to do to this with Apache/TomCat.

Any advice?
