Using the Inventor 2012 Full Help Offline

I wanted to assess the Autodesk Inventor Default Help offline so I asked my question on the official forum and found the solution. If anyone wants to do the same follow the following steps.
First you  have to downloaded and installed the Inventor 2012 Full Help from here. But It will not open form Autodesk  Inventor by default. Only online Wiki help will open.

The first solution is you can simply create a shortcut on your desktop and have it point to, for instance:<install folder> \Inventor 2012\Help_Full \index.html

But if you want to access  the help from within the context of the product or from within a dialog, do the following.

Edit the file <install folder> \Inventor 2012\Bin\HelpIds.xml in Notepad
Find the string “UseOnline”
Change the value from 1 to 0 and save the file.
Restart Inventor.
Note. Be aware that by downloading and using the help on a local drive, you have chosen to work with a snapshot version of the Help that possibly is out-of-date, contrary to the Wiki help which at all times shows the most up-to-date help information
So, if you want to go back to the default behavior, that is, to use the help from the Wiki when you are on-line, setback the value for “UseOnline” to 1
