    Bob,
    I've got Windows Millenium (Beta 3) and Windows 2000 and the hh.exe file exists in the Windows Path (C:\Windows and D:\WinNT, respectively). About that html.dll file, could that be a typo and be MSHTML.DLL instead? Just a thought.

    I've found 'some' solutions in MSDN to my problem...

    Windows uses the HH.EXE file to start a Help.CHM
    Therefore: x& = SHELL("hh.exe help.chm") works but...

    I'm using
    Win98 SE
    hh.exe exists in c:\Windows
    Does it exist in all versions Win95/98/2000 and Win NT in the Windows path?

    MSDN mentions using html.dll (in SDK - HTML Help References) but I can't find it even though I've got HTML Help compiler.

    Any other ideas would be welcomed.

    Thanks in Advance,
    --Bob

    Windows CHM Help Files

    Can anyone tell me how to display Window's new compiled help files (.CHM) from a button? The older (.HLP) files could be accessed with WinHelp, but I can't seem to get that API to work.
