When I try to display Help within Developer Studio, I get an error window saying the page cannot be displayed. In the window, it has:
Error Code: 502 Proxy Error. The ISA Server denied the specified Uniform Resource Locator (URL). (12202)
Well, how am I supposed to tell our support people what the problem is if developer studio will not tell me the exact URL it's trying to access?
Help was working a few weeks ago but broke last week. Another developer has the same problem so it's not just my workstation.

I think we have fixed it. We have Mozilla Firefox installed because IE is a piece of ..... I initially changed the help setting to "Default System Browser".

I have now changed it to use a custom browser and pointed it to Firefox. Now help displays again in Firefox.
this is a strange problem but I remember I had this also some time ago.
Just as background, eclipse seems to start a tomcat server as webserver for the helpcontent. The help window than is nothin g else than just an embedded browser. Try to start a normal webbrowser with this URL :
(I am not sure if the port is the same on every machine).
maybe your proxy settings prevent this call.
