After installing QGIS v184.108.40.206 on two different Windows computers, the help PDF file included with the download links to a help PDF file for version 0.9.1.
I had to manually download the current help PDF file.
Before copying the v1.0.0 help PDF file to the \\doc folder, I renamed the existing help PDF file from "userguide.pdf" to "userguide-0-9-1.pdf" just in case the process failed. I then copied the v1.0.0 help PDF file to the \\doc folder.

OK, I understand, but would like to make a suggestion --
I have another GIS software package (not free!) and they make a provision to download a help PDF file and copy it into a specific folder. Then when you press the F1 key or click on Help - Help Contents, it opens the help PDF file. If one is not found, it opens an HTML file with a link to the downloadable help PDF file.
I think that option should be made available, especially for those folks that do not have an "always on" or high-speed internet connection.
