We are currently having intermittent issues with our CHM builds. If you have downloaded a CHM from the MySQL website, please do not report a bad CHM as a bug. CHMs are rebuilt every 6 hours. Please download a later build and use that. For more information on the problems, see Problems with the CHM Refman builds.
If an error occurs when you try to open a CHM documents and the document content does not display, right-click on the document icon and select Properties. Then click the Unblock button in the Properties window and click Apply.
