Ok my last thread on MMedia.hlp isn't getting much reponse so....can someone tell what type of file has the GID extension.

This file spawns the first time you run mmedia.hlp and i thought it might have something to do with displaying the graphics which are not appearing in the help file. Is there a certain type graphic like bmp that you are suppose to associate with this file.


Thanx for any help

there's a couple of files related to .hlp files, I believe .gid is some
form of fast-search index (not to be confused with the .fts full-text-search
index that is generated when you do, tada, full-text search).
None of the autogenerated files should have anything to do with
missing images.

I've seen missing images in a lot of those cruddy old help files...
if you can, try to find more recent files :).
