I have this problem with R 2.6.1 and 2.7.1 (have not tried others) running on Windows XP:

Html help has wrong links to help files. The index.html is correctly found from


as well as the search engine


However, when I search for, say, "paste", I will be pointed to


which of course does not exist. Changing this manually to


leads me to the correct page.

Any views on how to fix this? I have installed 2.6.1 to another laptop without such problems, therefore I suspect that the problem would be somehow related to the settings of this particular laptop. However, I do not know where to look.
