I asked a similar question a few weeks ago, and was told it's a known
issue in 2.6.x, and if I remember correctly, is to be addressed in an
upcoming release. Meantime, since I know it installed on my system, and
since I know it is an [set of] html files, I simply point my internet
brower [I prefer Seamonkey, but the same technique should work with any
browser] to the top level of the help files on my system, and bookmarked
it. When I need to open the local help files, I simply open the browser,
and click on the link.
