Help File – Local Copy

To reduce overall download size and time, product documentation is no longer included by default with the Enterprise installation files. Instead, Enterprise uses online help documentation (i.e., https://help.earthsoft.com). If local help documentation is needed (e.g., no external Internet access), the help documentation file can be downloaded separately. If the documentation exists locally in the /help folder (i.e., {wwwroot}/help/index.htm), then Enterprise will use the local help documentation content rather than the online help. Both online and local help documentation support context-specific help.

 

Complete the following steps to setup use of a local product documentation file:

1.Contact support@earthsoft.com for a local copy of the documentation file. This will be a zip file.

2.Create a local, physical folder within {wwwroot} called "help" (i.e., {wwwroot}/help). For a typical installation, the file path would be C:\Program Files\EarthSoft\Enterprise7\help.

3.Extract the zipped help documentation file to the {wwwroot}/help directory.

4.To revert to online help documentation, ensure that a local, physical {wwwroot}/help folder does NOT exist.
