please please help with installing chm files

please please help with installing chm files

please please help with installing chm files

hello everybody.
I have created a help file .chm with help html workshop for my application i created in vb6 and when i run the application and call the chm file everything works ok. Now i am trying to package this application and my problem is that if in package deployment wizard - included files, i try to add the chm file i am getting a window with message these files are needed for this package but cannot be found. Missing files help.chi. Also when click to add button in file types combo box, there are not provided chm files but hlp and i tried to add the help.chm select all files (*.*). Have i to create again help files but not with html workshop? I don't like use help workshop. I think that with html help workshop the help files are more flexible and frienlier to the user. This is my first application, my first chm too and my first package too. Forgive me if my questions seams to you easy. Any help will be much appriciated.

RE: please please help with installing chm files

Thank you ZmrAbdulla,
My operating system is Windows XP SP2. Will it be ok with my operating system or will i have problems? Because i didn't saw in you link mention something for windows XP.
And another question i have is which setup to download setup1.exe or setup2.exe?

You didn't read it..
>>>>Both files must be downloaded to the same directory and run to self extract. Then run the setup.exe to begin installation of Visual Studio Installer."

PDW has less support for WinXP
