Solved WinHelp (.hlp) files in Vista

Post by darkagn on Wed Jul 02, 2008 1:26 pm

Hi all,

I realised today that Vista does not support .hlp files, the "standard" help file format in previous Windows versions. Just thought I'd post this link for anyone that needs to view these files (not that any of us needs help though right ;) )

Anyway hope this helps someone out there...




There are no stupid questions, only those too stupid to ask for help.

This is true dark!

If you want to view 32-bit .hlp files in Vista you must download WinHlp32.exe:

Actually, it is extreamly useful. Think about it. There are still software developers using the .hlp file ext for there help files.
