[Rd] How to link to vignette from .Rd file

I am building a package for various noncentral hypergeometric distributions.

I want to include some heavy mathematical formulas. It appears that the build and INSTALL commands produce only .chm files and not .pdf files from my .Rd files under Windows. This means that it cannot show complicated mathematical formulas.

The solution might be to include a .pdf file as a vignette. I tried that, but I can't find any way to link to the .pdf file or access it from any of the help facilities. The .pdf file is useless if the user can't find it.

I have placed the .pdf file under inst\doc\ together with an index.html file.
I have tried to link to the .pdf file from an .Rd file with \link{packagename/doc/xxx.pdf}
