Will docview also work with Windows7 x64.

I don't have Windows 7 to test, but I can't see why it wouldn't work. If you do try, please let us know if it worked or not.

I got one of our technicians to try DocView on a Win7 (32-bit) system, and it works fine there. We still don't have a Win7 (64-bit) system, but I don't foresee any problems.

This INF format is pretty cool,but too it's static. Once I compiled it I can't add any more topics on runtime.

I changed   TheProcess.ShowWindow:=swoHide
in              TheProcess.ShowWindoe:=swoShowNormal.
How do I now compile the Ide ?

After changing the ide I rebuild Lazarus and as a result
docview is now working perfect.!
I am working with Windows 7 ultimate (64bit).
It would be nice if after opening docview again the former window closes.

Hi,

nice tool, however on my linux/gnome x64 system, the changes to fonts (size or font name) have no effect at all. And they are to small for my 43 years old eyes!

The lastest version in fpGUI's repository has this issue fixed (and some new features are added). I hope to make a new binary release of DocView in the next few days.

Thanks for getting back on Win7 (64-bit). It is planned to have DocView simply update the current displayed topic when you call help for the IDE (instead of opening a new instance).

I don't understand what you mean or trying to do?

I can add that the latest DocView (in fpGUI repository) does allow you to add annotation inline (displayed as part of the current topic) - but still that doesn't modify the original INF file (you wouldn't want that anyway).
