I purchased the download version of Chessmaster 11 and the program runs fine. However, I selected "help:contents" and the game told me the Adobe application wasn't there. I assume this is the manual. I answered yes to a question on whether to install it and it asked me to insert the disc, which I don't have. How can I remedy this and get the manual?
You already have the manual -- you just need Adobe Reader in order to view it. Here's the link:
Adobe Reader 9
You don't have a pdf reader on your computer?
On which planet do you live?
I do have Adobe Reader, version 9. It opens all the time when I click on pdf documents. Chessmaster doesn't seem to know its there.
I see the manual in the chessmaster folder on my computer, but the game will not launch it when I select "help/contents."
Well, it sounds like you need to re-install Adobe Reader, under the same Administrator account that you installed Chessmaster under.
You can also open the file directly from Reader:
