: : Am upgrading from FMv5 to FMv6. Just installed FM v6 but can't use Help. Get error message "Microsoft Help has encountered a problem & needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." Am using Windows XP. Installed FM v6 in same folder as FM v5. Other parts of program seem to work O.K.
: : In your preliminary instructions you said that the installation of v6 would overwrite v5. I still have v5 as well as v6 on my hard disk--both in the Fund Manager folder.

Yes, it does happen repeatedly. Rebooting doesn't make any difference.
Another bit of information that may be relevant--as I stated previously both FMv5 & FMv6 are in the same folder. I thought that when I installed FMv6 it would overwrite FMv5. This did not happen as evidenced that both versions are now present. FMv5 will start up when activated--the Help utility shows the same error message when requested. Does the fact that both versions are present cause a conflict in Help? Perhaps I should delete the FMv5.exe file or must I use uninstall to get it out of the folder?
