  • Win32 .HLP files

    On creating .HLP files for Windows95/98:

    Are there any freeware / shareware applications
    to make .HLP files for Windows?

    (I have heard that VB has a Workshop for this,
    but I don't have VB!).

    Best regards,

    There's heaps of pseudo help file applications out there, but most rely on MS-WORD to create the actual RTF files needed to create a help file.

    MS has a free one too (Help Workshop).

    Search the net for HELP AUTHORING

      Adam --

      I've been very happy with one called HELLLP! It's shareware. ($35 I think).

          Many new help files are now make with Html Help... But you need to have Internet Explorer in the computer to be able to see it!

          If you are interested by this kind of help files, just email me your name and I will find a Internet link (the address) of it...

            VB Help Writer is inexpensive and fairly easy to use.

            Although designed for use with VB, it's possible to use
            it independently.

            If you need a URL, I'll try to find one.
