Vista Tip 11: Get Help to Work for Older Programs

Vista Tip 11: Get Help to Work for Older Programs
February 11, 2008 Jens

With the release of Windows Vista, the windows help program (WinHlp32.exe) is no longer included. So when summoning the help of some older programs (“.hlp” files) you get a nice error message, but no help.

Shortly after the initial release of Windows Vista, Microsoft put the old WinHlp32.exe online for download in different language versions for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Vista.

The overview article is located at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917607. A download link is also included in that article.
