 Topic Not Found, after clicking a link inside the help file
I think there is a broken link in the help file.
Just do this :

Inside the IDE, at the 'Dynamic help' click the 'Search' button.
Do a search for 'PathTypes' filtered by 'Visual Basic and Related'.
The first result has the title 'GraphicsPath.PathTypes Property' .
Double click this result.
At the top, below the blue frame, there is the text:
'Gets the types of the corresponding points in the PathPoints array.'
Click at the PathPoints link.
Here I get the Topic Not Found Page

Do you?

I get the same result.  If you look at the source of the page, you'll see
that the URL is invalid.  The correct help URL is (watch for wrapping):

ms-help://MS.VSCC/MS.MSDNVS/cpref/html/frlrfSystemDrawingDrawing2DGraphicsPa
thClassPathPointsTopic.htm
