I took the following steps to launch Dolphin:

1. I went to https://github.com/dolphinsmalltalk/Dolphin/tree/7.0
2. I downloaded this repo as ZIP to a directory on my laptop;
3. I extracted the contents of this ZIP;
4. I right-clicked FetchVM.ps1 and chose "Run with PowerShell";
5. I double-clicked BootAll.cmd
6. I associated .img7 images with Dolphin7.exe
7. I double-clicked DPRO.img7

Wow! This seemed to be working! The app launched!

With one exception. I had no in-app Help.

The Help from the Help menu did launch and did display a table of contents, however double-clicking any page from the table of contents failed to display this page.

Trying to use the "What's this?" feature was only bringing me here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/917607/feature-not-included-help-not-supported-error-opening-help-windows

Whoops. Was my installation corrupt?

I checked the GitHub issues and I saw this: https://github.com/dolphinsmalltalk/Dolphin/issues/702

Does this issue mean that the devs have consciously chosen to abandon the documentation of Dolphin Smalltalk and not provide one?

Am I, therefore, reduced to trial and error to learn Dolph Smalltalk?
