Parameters

/url [ URL ] : Specifies the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) that you want to display within Help and Support Center.

/mode [ URL ] : Specifies an Extensible Markup Language (XML) Definition file that complies with the Launch_Description.dtd schema, which controls the context, layout and content of Help and Support Center.
