The Help for this program was created in Windows Help format, which depends on a feature that isn’t included in this version of Windows â€¦
I went to the recommended site at Microsoft, and there they explained the following:
Microsoft stopped including the 32-bit Help file viewer in Windows releases beginning with Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.
Isn’t that just sweet? Arghhhh!
Fortunately, they still offer you the chance to download and install the old help file viewer, which is named WinHlp32.exe.
Even if you haven’t gotten this helpfulmessage yet, you probably will at some time in the future. You can save yourself some time later and install the old help viewer now.
Here is the download for Vista, and here is the download for Windows 7. You’ll have to jump through Microsoft’s Genuine Validation hoop before you can get to the real download. Other than that, it acts like any other Windows Update.
If you need more help installing the old help, let me know with a comment below or email me.
