[Limdep Nlogit List] problem with "Help" in LIMDEP

Frank (and those interested).  If you are using Windows XP, there is a
solution to this problem described in the support page of the limdep
website, limdep.com. However, the limdep help file is incompatible with
Windows Vista. Here is another solution.  Download the file


Place it in your desktop folder, then rename it limdep.chm.  (You have
to do this because if you try to download a .chm  file with your browser,
the browser will try to execute the file, rather than download it. 
.chm = compiled html.)

Once you have limdep.chm on your desktop, you have a standalone version 
of the Help system that does not require the .dll files that the internal
one does. You can run limdep.chm any time you wish, whether using limdep
or not.  Just double click the icon.  Note as well, that this .chm file 
is useable with Vista or XP.

Dear all, 


I wonder if anyone experienced similar problems when LIMDEP was first
installed.  I just installed LIMDEP 9.0 but had problem using HELP. The
following message pops up when I click "Help Topics" in the "Help" menu.


"Cannot find or load the file RoboEx32.dll.  This file should be copied
to C:\WINDOWS\system32 or a director in your PATH."


I have absolutely no idea what it meant. If I ignore the message by
clicking the "OK" button, then the Help window will appear with another
message box:


"An error exists in this Help file. Contact your application vendor for
an updated Help file. (1024)"


Again I am completely clueless.  BTW, the same problem occurs on my
WINDOWS XP desktop and WINDOWS VISTA laptop.
