SQL Server Express, English version, is written to search "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\Help\1045" or "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Binn\Resources\1045" when to launch the help files. On non-US systems, the help files are placed in other folders than "\1045," such as "\1033," because the installation is performed by the Windows installer, which is related to the operating system.
Create a sub folder "\1045" under "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Setup Bootstrap\Help\"and "C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\Binn\Resources\." Copy all "chm" files from "\1033" to "\1045."
