For these routines to run normally, you must turn off Active Assistance.

To turn off the persistent display of the Active Assistance:

  2. In the Settings dialog box, clear the Show on Start check box and select Demand Load.
  3. Right-click the icon again and click Exit.

Active Assistance cannot be turned off programmatically, so you must manually perform the steps above to turn it off.

Note:

To use Active Assistance during a session, click Active Assistance on the Help menu. When finished, close Active Assistance by clicking the 'X' in the upper right corner of the Active Assistance window.
