Hi I'm trying to implement help files into my application which is cross platform.
I'm trying to use the following method for it :
http://browserlauncher.sourceforge.net/
It works perfectly on Windows but on Solaris netscape is visible in the processes but it is never launched.
Has anyone else come across this problem?
any help at all would be great!

this is not an answer to your question -
Why don't you use JavaHelp?

I had a look at javahelp but the quicker and easier option was to stick to the html files that I already have.

Is there any reason why you wouldn't put this in a JTextPane component to just render this in Java using the HTML Editor kit?
It can be a little slow coming up but once it is loaded in the JVM it is pretty quick. We had someone load a HTML object in a background thread so when they needed the help it was very quick to load.
Hope this helps.
