AutoCAD [Electrical] Online Help not working

In this episode of tenacious troubleshooting, I was assisting a customer that was having issues accessing the Online help for AutoCAD Electrical 2015.

When the user tried to install the AutoCAD Electrical Offline Help, it didn't work because of VCRedist problem so we hacked it out from the setup.ini using this workflow:

Once it was installed, the help was blank, so we needed to configure the AMD Catalyst Control Center for maximum performance because it was a consumer video card:

Once we got that going, we need to go back to try to figure out the problem with the Online help and it was a relatively easy fix noted below:

We needed to extrapolate this Internet Options settings from this article:

Thanks to Ted Moreau for confirming that this solution worked.
