Newbie running Win 7 Build 7000...

Does anyone have a workaround for WinHlp32.exe?


Why can't I get Help from this program?

The Help for this program was created in Windows Help format, which depends on a feature that is not included in this version of Windows. However, you can download a program that will allow you view Help created in the Windows Help format.
For more information, go to Windows Help program (WinHlp32.exe) is no longer included with Windows on the Microsoft support website.

After installing the Vista fix for this on my Vista system, I then did the following:

Copy the winhlp32.exe and winhlp32.exe.mui from Vista and put the winhlp32.exe in the Windows folder of Windows 7 and the winhlp32.exe.mui in the Windows\en-us folder. You will have to rename the ones that are there already or delete them.

I cannot open Help files that require the Windows Help (WinHlp32.exe) program

PS. I gave up on "G's" hence the copter. LOL.


Thanks pbcopter.

By the way, my 7g's are all virtual (flight simmer) :)
