the link in the About dialog window has a different method to open a web page 
than the
reference manual help system. In psppire 0.10.2 on MacOS I get the error 
„Link cannot be shown. Procedure is not supported“. I remember that this
is a known problem.

The reference manual help system has three possible sources to retrieve the 
help pages. If the program
„yelp“ is installed, then the help pages are displayed via yelp. I guess the 
yelp application is not installed on
windows. If „yelp“ is not installed, psppire searches for a local html help 
file. On my Mac this is:


When I click on „Handbook incl. Referencemanual“ in psppire, then the Mac Web 
Browser opens with this file. 
If no local help file is found, because it was not installed, then the html 
help is retrieved via internet access.

In both cases the local web browser should open. 

Could you test the follwing

a) Take your link 
file:///C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/PSPP/share/doc/pspp/pspp.html/index.html as 
an address in your
web browser. Does that show the correct page in the web browser?

b) Rename the directory 

> C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/PSPP/share/doc/pspp/pspp.html


> C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/PSPP/share/doc/pspp/pspp-hide.html

then open psppire and click on „Help -> Handbook“ ? This should open the web 
browser with the
following page:

because no local help file is found.

c) Could you write a file „test.vbs“ with the content


and then run „wscript test.vbs“ in a command window? What is the result? This 
mimics the procedure for windows
as coded in:
I expect that your web browser opens with that page.

d) Can you say which application is connected with html files on your system? 
If you go to the directory
C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/PSPP/share/doc/pspp/pspp.html with your file browser 
and then open index.html, does
any web browser open?
