I have installed the msdn library version 6a onto my system and i get the

"Cannot open file c:\program....msdnvs6a.col". I have uninstalled the
library, re-installed it, deleted the hhcolreg.dat file and still nothing,
can anyone tell me what the problem is?

From here:

On line 4 of the file, Removed <masterlangid value=1031/>

Seems like a "wierd" solution, but might be worth a try. I would make a backup copy of MSDNVS6A.COL before making any changes.

Hallo Everybody,
thanks for your help....
But I have found the reason.....
Under %SystemRoot%\WINNT\HELP is a File named HHCOLREG.DAT, in this file where stored any path´s to open the MSDN Library
I have edit the path´s in this file to the correct Directory where the msdnv6a.col stored and MSDN LIBRARY works perfect......
