I'm about to embark in creating a help system for my application. Most current help compilers create HTML Help files (*.chm) whereas previously WinHelp (*.hlp) files were the norm. Apparently the support for Winhelp(*.hlp) has been withdrawn by Microsoft with the advent of Vista. Although you can still download the WinHelp I prefer to use the current format. My question is how do you call up the HTML format help files from within a windows application. The Generic sample provided still utilises the WinHelp API function which does not recognise HTML files.
