EWriter eBooks are the modern alternative to the obsolete CHM format for local application help. They offer full support for context-sensitive help and file links. They combine the benefits of CHM and WebHelp and eliminate the disadvantages of both.

Viewer installation for eWriter as software documentation

When you are using eWriter as software documentation to replace CHM files you need to know where the viewer is so that you can make your calls to it reliably. We recommend installing the standard version of the viewer for this together with your software. See EWriter for Software Help for details.

Each book is opened in a separate instance of the eViewer app

Each book you open has one and only one instance. If you make another call to the same book it will apply to the open instance. You can have multiple books open at the same time. To address the individual books you include the name of the book in your call along with the parameters, as shown below.
