VFP9 SP2 Help file produces error

Topics: Attention VFPX Admins

dv_foxhelp.chm is in the VFP9 app (Microsoft Visual FoxPro 9) folder on a standalone Windows 7 64-bit machine. VFP9 SP2 was installed.

If opening the file by double-clicking dv_foxhelp.chm all text on the right is huge and in times new roman. Although some links work, an OpenSection script error appears if I click any See Also link.

If dv_foxhelp.chm is opened from within VFP9 the font on the right changes to Tahoma, it's sized properly, but if even the root help link on the left is clicked, now a Script Error appears that the value of the saveAll property is null or undefined. Run as Admin for vfp9.exe makes no difference.

The chm file works on a XP machine and a windows 8 machine when tested, from within VFP or by a double-click. I'm missing something in my Windows 7 system or have the wrong version of a file somewhere. Can anyone tell me which versions of supporting files are needed for this .chm file to work normally under windows 7?
