The only thing has changed after the update is the message I get from Vista. Before I got the invitation to download the winhlp version for Vista, after the update I got the message “Impossible to open the help file. Try to open the new file. If you gat always this message try to copy the new file on a new unit and retry”

He is on a new laptop from Toshiba and he went to the M$ link for the winhlp32.exe download. After downloading, he started having problems with the laptop. He tried to restore to a previous point but that didn’t work. He can’t uninstall winhlp because it doesn’t show up anywhere. Micro$oft says call Toshiba, Toshiba says nothing should be wrong. Any ideas?

The venerable WinHelp engine, which debuted with Window 3.1, is not included with Vista. Attempting to access help files supplied in WinHelp format (.hlp) opens a Windows Help and Support page entitled “Why Can’t I Get Help From This Program?” Chris Pirillo predicts that Microsoft will reverse this decision in the future, but for now you must download the missing and unsupported engine from Microsoft to restore access to your Help.

Then it says that the updated download will be available – hmm When !! What a stupid situation, just include it on the DVD in an extras folder if it needs some thought before install – Vista does seem rushed and unfinished in places for sure – even after all this time !

The replacement HTML Help .chm files have been around since Windows 98. But still no word on when the winhlp32 download will be available. WinHelp.exe is for 16 bit .hlp files and the winhlp32.exe included in Windows Vista is only there to show you the error message.

Pfft!!! The very reason Microsoft is doing this is because developers are still using winhlp32.exe and they want to force them to stop! But the result of this stupid decision is that none of your 32 bit .hlp files are usable. Do a search and you probably have a thousand of them on your system! Vista was released last month and there STILL is no download for this from Microsoft.
