RE: Free WinHelp Products

Hey Mike, I get to return the help (data classes).
If you go to the Microsoft Site and search for HTML Help, you will find a freebie called HTML Help Workshop.
It's not great,but it's pretty good.

Here is the link to the WinHelp.api reference (HTML)

Here is the main D/L site:

I hope this helps :0)

RE: Free WinHelp Products

Have you tried to write your own HelpMaker program?

I'm still contemplating if I should or not.  I'm useing WordPerfect to write most of my stuff (spell checking is VG) but then I use a text editor to put in some final touches.




By the twitching of my thumb, something wicked this way comes........oh, it's only a boogy.

RE: Free WinHelp Products

Don't write your own, there are too many free ones on the net.

RE: Free WinHelp Products

Unfortunately, I only have VB 4 Prof. Ed. and there is a help compiler that came with it, but not a help writer (ex: Robohelp).

So, I don't currently need to use HTML help because I don't have a web site anyways.  But, thanks for the suggestions
