A few minutes ago, the ConfigMgr team published it’s first ever hotfix update to the chm on the box. You can go to http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=81997356-7f18-48b2-a53a-d6f995a47f35&DisplayLang=en to download the x86 or x64 English version. No localized versions are planned for release; this interim update is ENU only but at SP1, international customers will get all the current changes localized along with the service pack.
You can install this only on a computer that already has the ConfigMgr console installed. We look for the old version of the help file and replace it with the new version. But after you do the update, when you press F1, you get the fresh, new version. Topics updated since RTM say either Topic last updated—August 2008 or Topic last updated—November 2008. There are also topics that show the content changes in the August and November editions of the content. The content in this hotfix chm is the same as the content posted on the TechCenter at http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb680651.aspx.
What do you think? It takes some extra effort to do this sort of thing, but is it worth it for you? Does this help you in your “offline” scenarios?
