XE 2018 v1 Help files gone (again)

Where are the compiler documentation files?

The MSVS integration to the help files is broken (again - I see it happened with the 2016 release).

I have repaired my install, but still no links to the compiler and language reference.

Hi David, unfortunately Intel decided to remove F1 Help completely and help files from installers with PSXE 2018. That's nothing, which can be repaired by the installer. If you are interested in detail read this:

You can download the offline-html help from download center. Unfortunately, only for ALL Intel developer tools as a bundle. Online help can be found here:

Unfortunately PSXE2018 update 2 brings not back the context F1 help integration to VS.

Please, Intel team, give it back to us!
