PTC Creo Parametric help icon

Hi,

        When we click on the PTC Creo Parametric help icon, we get an error message:

"Creo Help Center on http://help.ptc.com/ could not be accessed. Check your internet access. For offline access to help, install the help center locally. See the installation guide for details"

 

Could someone help me with the settings relevant to ensure the help icon leads to the correct link for help. We do not want to install the help locally.

 

thanks

Ananth

Re: PTC Creo Parametric help icon

Hi,

 

which Creo version do you use ?

 

I do not understand why local installation is not acceptable for you ...

I am having a similar issue.  My company has a permanent license for CREO 1.0.  I recently installed on a new PC and everything works except "HELP".  Went back to the old PC and HELP works fine.  There is no "local installation" option for CREO 1.0 via ptcsetup.

Hi Martin,

               Thanks for your response. We use CREO Parametric 3.0. One thing I noticed is that there is no folder called creo_help_pma within our CREO directories.

This is how our M090 folder is:

 

The help folder is within Common Files and here are the contents of the help folder:

 

With the current set-up please let me know what could have gone wrong. 

 

Thanks,

Ananth

Hi,

 

I am sorry i can't help you. Creo 1.0 is dead for a long time and I do not have it installed on my PC.

Hi,

 

currently you cannot access PTC Help via internet from CR3 M090. It is a bug. Therefore you have to install Help locally.

 

Note: In CR3 M150 PTC Help via internet works well.

Re: PTC Creo Parametric help icon

I was able to find the disk to install local help for 1.0

 

Thanks for replying.
