We have a client who is wanting to upgrade from JavaHelp 1.1.3 to 2.0. I installed JavaHelp 2.0 on my machine to start playing with it, but I don't see any way to start up the JavaHelp custom browser (hsviewer)! When I installed 1.1.3, I got a complete JavaHelp category in my Start menubar....I see nothing like that for 2.0...

What am I doing wrong?

V2.0 no longer uses the same installation mechanisms as V1.1.3 did. To
activate the hsviewer just double click on the viewer or type java -jar
hsviewer.jar from the command line.

If you are on a Microsoft Windows platform and J2SE is installed, you can just
double-click on demos\bin\hsviewer.jar.

On other systems or from the MSDOS command prompt:

java -jar hsviewer.jar

Be sure the java command is in your PATH.

This is all documented in the JavaHelp User's Guide.
