re: creating files in the system directory
I don't understand this statement - if an old application supplies its help
in a .hlp file, why do you think there will be a .chm file shipped along
with it? Or
are you saying that Vista somehow converts .hlp files to .chm? If that is
so, why
when I try to view old help files, do I get a help box from Vista telling my
why I
can't view .hlp files?
