    WinHlp32 installer for Vista/2008/7

    The installer is a batch (CMD) file, which does the job of winhlp32.exe/winhlp32.exe.mui replacement and fixing Registry entries.

    \Windows\WinHlp32.exe is a stub - Try this ...

    The winhlp32.exe in the \Windows directory is only a stub - it is not capable of displaying .hlp files. This stub is what displays the "Why can't I get Help from this program?" message.

    I've used the following method (from Opening old .hlp help files under Windows 7? )

    PBCOPTER,

    Your post looked promising, but I cannot find a windows\en-us folder in my installed Vista partition. Where might that be?

    Hi,
    Are you using another language rather than US english?

    It should be in C:\Windows\

    Nope. Just plain US English. I don't recall having seen that folder name before, except possibly on an install disc.

    In all my Vista installations it is C:\Windows\en-US.
