Windows Form Help Application

I need to write a help application for a windows desktop program like the one that appears in many of Microsoft's windows products that includes a Contents tab, Index tab and a Search tab with a results window to the right side.  Can anyone offer some direction to help me get started?


RE: Windows Form Help Application

Why not use Microsoft's help engine?

All you would need to do is write the content using any number of help authoring tools (RoboHelp seems to be the market leader).

Hi Chip,

One of the other forums directed me to the Microsoft HTML Help Workshop.  It's exactly what I was looking for.  It's free and has everything I need.  Thanks for your input.
