I am just rebuilding a laptop. Previously I had installed SQLA 16 and run the second Install button to Install Documentation. I believe I remember it took me to a website where I could either 1) access the Docs, or b) Install a local copy. (I always install the local copy so I can use it when I am travelling on the ferry, or on a plane).

Now that Install option displays a page that says "mark the new URL" which is a SAP SCN page, and I can't seem to find any way to install local documentation at all. Am I missing something obvious?

Thanks, Bill

Hi Bill,

When you clicked the option to install the docs, it should have initially taken you to a page that explains the docs have moved, and a link to find them. This is the new location it should have given you: http://scn.sap.com/docs/DOC-35856.

On that page, you can pick the help format (CHM, PDF etc) you'd like to install.

It resolves for me, but are you having difficulty accessing that URL?

looks like it must have been a broken link or page undergoing maintenance the other day: it did indeed take me to an SCN page, but it didn't look anything like the page I see when I click on the link above. Thanks Laura, that's the familiar page I was expecting. And now I have the docs. Ooops... I will have them at some point. As Mikel noted below, now I have to log on to actually access them. Guess I'll have to resurrect my now expired SCN account.

Do these links to the documentation installers work? [PDF] [HTML]

You may need to be signed in to an SCN account.

So these are the official places to look for the documentation set (particularly when the HTML version is desired, which seems not available via DCX)?

OK, Laura has already answered that question:)
